News for Malaysia

  • Announcement Ref. No.: SQASI/CMCS/1/21/0020 released by MCMC

    According to the notice SQASI/CMCS/1/21/0020, the obligation of a marketing name for products to be homologated has been implemented.

    Adding the marketing name facilitates the regulator’s enforcement team to verify the product certification status via the CYL mobile application. 

    For manufacturers, there are various possibilities how the above-mentioned specification can be implemented.

    Retrospectively, certificate holders may request to modify the information present on their existing Certificates of Conformity (CoC).

    If you intend to add multiple marketing names, please make sure to meet the specific variation criteria as defined by SIRIM QAS International. We appreciate your inquiries and will gladly assist you with any further information in this matter.

  • Certification of 6 GHz frequency band for Wi-Fi prohibited

    Malaysian authority SIRIM QAS International announced that currently, the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) is checking the possible use of 6 GHz frequency band for Wi-Fi. For this reason, certification of the 6 GHz frequency band for Wi-Fi is no longer permitted with immediate effect.

    The applicant for type approval must ensure that the 6 GHz frequency is disabled on devices supporting this frequency prior to application, which is verified by the SIRIM RF&EMCT laboratory.

    The approval and import of equipment operating in the 6 GHz frequency band is also prohibited for the time being, provided it has a Special Approval (Company and Individual (SA & CL)).

  • MCMC revised Technical Code for Short Range Devices

    On 6 May 2020, the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) registered the 2nd revision of the Technical Code for Short Range Devices “MCMC MTSFB TC T007:2020”, which cancels and replaces the previous version MCMC MTSFB TC T007:2014.

    The main modification are as following:

      a)  Update the frequency bands and maximum transmit power limits for generic and specific SRD applications to be aligned with the latest Class Assignment No. 2 of 2019; 

     b)  Inclusion of technical requirements for new SRD applications such as Ultra-Wideband (UWB), inductive device and automotive radar based on the latest Class Assignment No. 2 of 2019; and  

    c)  Inclusion of new technical requirements for electrical safety and EMC for devices that can be directly connected to the service provider’s network. 



  • Changing Process to Electronic Certification of Conformity

    Since 11th of February the Industrial Research Institute of Malaysia (SIRIM QAS) has introduced the electronic Certificate of Conformity (eCOC).

    Until 11th August a transitional period will be granted to the applicants to have the option to receive the hard copy version or the new eCOC, which will be created with a QR code for identification and traceability.




  • Implementation of Online Self Labelling Program

    On 2015-02-24 a Self-Labelling Programme (SLP) was launched by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) and its appointed Certifying Agency, SIRIM. This will replace the conventional labeling program from 2015-06-15 onwards.

    The SLP certification mark consists of:

    1. logo design
    2. "MCMC" (as word)
    3. Common ID (CID) or certificate Holder ID (HID)

    The SLP allows self-labelling by the certificate holder or manufacturer of their certified products according to related regulations (surface-marking or e-Labelling).

  • 5470-5650 MHz Opened for SRD

    Malaysia has opened the band 5470-5650 MHz (comparable to U-NII-2C) for use by Short Ranges Devices. 

    However, notebooks cannot rely on modular approval anymore - now, each notebook needs its own hostbased approval, even if its modules are approved already.

Safety Information for Malaysia

Type A Plug
Type A Sock Type A Plug Type A Sock

The Type A electrical plug (or flat blade attachment plug) is an ungrounded plug with two flat parallel pins. Although the American and Japanese plugs appear identical, the neutral pin on the American plug is wider than the live pin, whereas on the Japanese plug both pins are the same size. As a result, Japanese plugs can be used in the US but often not the other way around. The pins on Type A and Type B plugs have a hole near the tip that fits into ‘bumps’ found on the contact wipers of some sockets, so that the pins are gripped more tightly allowing for better contact and also to prevent the plug from slipping out of the socket. Some sockets have spring-action blades that grip the sides of the pins, making the holes obsolete.
Type C Plug
Type C Sock Type C Plug Type C Sock

The Type C electrical plug (or Europlug) is a two-wire plug that has two round pins. It fits into any socket that accepts 4.0 – 4.8 mm round contacts on 19 mm centres. They are being replaced by E, F, J, K or N sockets which work perfectly with Type C plugs. Type C plugs are generally limited for use in appliances that require 2.5 amps or less.
Type G Plug
Type G Sock Type G Plug Type G Sock

The Type G electrical plug has three rectangular blades in a triangular pattern and has an incorporated fuse (usually a 3 amps fuse for smaller appliances such as a computer and a 13 amps one for heavy duty appliances such as heaters). British sockets have shutters on the live and neutral contacts so that foreign objects can’t be introduced into them.
Type M Plug
Type M Sock Type M Plug Type M Sock

The Type M plug has three round pins in a triangular pattern and looks similar to the Indian Type D plug, but its pins are much larger. Type M plugs are sometimes used for bigger appliances in countries that make use of Type D plugs, as well as in Israel (Type H). Therefore, sockets in these countries sometimes work with Type M plugs.
