Effective January 2023, all manufacturers and importers of non-medical face masks must apply for MS SIRIM certification & labeling from SIRIM QAS International Sdn Bhd.

The Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs (KPDNHEP) in a statement said it was following the gazetting of the Trade Descriptions (Certification and Marketing) of Non-Medical Face Masks Order 2022 under the Trade Descriptions Act 2011, on April 5, 2022.

According to KPDNHEP, the gazetting aims to ensure that non-medical face masks produced either locally or imported comply with the safety standards set through the order.

The main reason for this implementation is to ensure that locally produced/imported non-medical face masks comply with safety standards as well as to resolve the issue of dumping poor-quality non-medical face masks in the Malaysian market also is to safeguard the well-being of the people & protect the interests of consumers.
