Singapore and Finland have agreed to recognize each other's cybersecurity labels for Internet of Things (IoT) devices, in order to help consumers evaluate the products' security.

Singapore's Cyber Security Agency (CSA) said the alliance aims to reduce duplicated testing and help manufacturers bring products to market more easily.

Both countries would acknowledge cybersecurity labels issued by the CSA and by Finland's Transport and Communications Agency.

Consumer IoT products that met Finland's cybersecurity label mandates would be recognized as having satisfied Singapore's Cybersecurity Labeling Scheme Level 3 requirements, and vice versa.
