Registration to Import Animal Feed




Registration to Import Animal Feed


In Singapore, registering to import animal feed depends on whether the feed is for food-producing animals or non-food-producing animals. Here's a breakdown for both:


Food-producing Animal Feed (e.g., livestock, poultry, aquaculture)


The registration is issued by the Singapore Food Agency (SFA). You can find details and apply for the Registration to Import Animal Feed on the GoBusiness Licensing portal [invalid URL removed].


Non-food-producing Animal Feed (e.g., pets)


This registration is handled by the Animal & Veterinary Service (AVS), a cluster of the National Parks Board (NParks). While there's no separate registration, you'll need a Cargo Clearance Permit (CCP) that functions as an import permit. Details on the CCP process can be found on the NParks website.


Here are some additional points to note:


  • You'll need a Unique Entity Number (UEN) to apply for either registration.

  • Every consignment of animal feed must be accompanied by a Cargo Clearance Permit (CCP), even for non-food-producing animals.

  • The CCP application process is done on TradeNet, a trade facilitation portal. You can appoint a declaring agent to handle this on your behalf if you don't have a TradeNet account.

  • Supporting documents like health certificates, manufacturer declarations, and ingredient lists are required for the CCP application.
