The licensees are also required to put in place a robust inventory system to track the movement of the collectibles, and to keep records of all supporting documents for at least five years. The Singapore Customs has the power to enter all the locations within the Singapore Freeport to conduct checks and perform investigations. The licensees are also subject to Singapore anti-money laundering and countering of financing of terrorism laws and regulations such as the Corruption, Drug Trafficking and Other Serious Crimes Act to combat money laundering and the Terrorism Act  which criminalises terrorism financing and imposes a duty on everyone to provide information pertaining to the terrorism financing to the Suspicious Transaction Reporting Officer.
