Basics by Free Trade Agreement: Singapore

What is the Integrated Sourcing Initiative (ISI)?
The ISI improves the global competitiveness of U.S. businesses and workers by adapting traditional trade rules to help U.S. companies improve the efficiency and flexibility of their global sourcing networks. The ISI currently accords special treatment to certain IT products. For a limited number of IT products and medical devices that already face zero tariffs in the United States and Singapore, the ISI eliminates the requirement that these products meet specific rules of origin when shipped between the United States and Singapore. Therefore, the customs procedure is streamlined, and the cost and burden on the importer is reduced.
