|Procedures for Application for Listing on HDB's Materials List
This is a useful guide for suppliers who wish to apply to list their products on the HDB's Materials List.
Before applying, the supplier must check if the product can meet HDB's evaluation criteria.
The evaluation criteria for each product are appended under the respective products listed in 'Product Evaluation Requirements'.
The evaluation criteria would cover some or all of the following:
(a) Testing to show compliance with specific performance requirements. The supplier may be required to engage an accredited laboratory to carry out independent sampling of their product for testing;
(b) Shop drawings to show compliance with HDB's design, eg. doors, windows, metal gates;
(c) Examination of the physical design or attribute for which samples need to be submitted;
(d) Listing in the TUV SUD PSB Corporation's Product Listing Scheme (PLS) for products such as fire rated doors or emergency exit lights;
(e) Manufacturer's record or product track record for products, which have greater risk in quality deviation due to production or raw materials (eg. tile adhesive);
(f) Observation of actual performance (eg. pumps) or on the worker's application for products which are highly dependent on the workmanship for proper application.
