Certification such as Malaysian Standard brings immense benefits to all stakeholders in achieving Consumer Protection and Public Welfare as well as Industrial Efficiency and Development.

For SMEs, the real benefits from certification may come in multifold such as brand reputation, access to public sector, tenders, newer markets while creating operational and financial benefits to organisations themselves.


What Is The Malaysian Standard?

Malaysian Standard (MS) is a consensus document developed by Standards Development Committee (SDCs) within the Malaysian Standards Development System and approved by the Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation in accordance with Standards of Malaysia Act 1996 (Act 549).

A MS is a technical document that specifies the minimum requirements of quality and safety for voluntary use by the public. A standard becomes mandatory when a regulatory agency enforces its use through the relevant Act and Regulations.

To the greatest extent possible, Malaysian Standards are aligned to or are adoption of international standards including ISO Standards.
