National IT Evaluation Scheme (NITES)

The National IT Evaluation Scheme (NITES) was launched in November 2009 and provides the platform for IT products to be evaluated and certified to be listed in the Government Evaluated Security Product List (GESPL).

The NITES delivers high security assurance by referencing international standards such as the Common Criteria (CC). More information on CC and Singapore Common Criteria Scheme (SCCS) are available here.
