Product Certification Scheme

Product Certification Scheme

Product Certification is offered to manufacturer who wishes to have its product certified to the requirements of a Malaysian or International Standard. Participation in this scheme is voluntary for most products. However, government regulatory authorities may require mandatory certification for certain products.

After successful application, the applicant is given a licence to mark the certified product with the "MS" certification mark. However for most regulated products, it is mandotory to affix the SIRIM labels on the products. The presence of the Label attests that the product meets quality requirements of the specified standard or specification. It also provides consumer an assurance of performance, safety and reliability as well as it demonstrates an effective system for production processes.
