of construction products to Malaysia. All imported construction products to be


imported must conform to the technical specification stipulated in the respective
Malaysian Standards. The importers/agents are obliged to execute the essential
testing requirements in an effort to provide evidences on the conformity of the
imported products to the corresponding Malaysian Standards.

It is hoped that this guide book will serve as a useful reference for all
importers, agents and forwarding agents towards expediting the importation
of construction products listed under The Customs Ordinance (Import

6. METHODS OF PRODUCT COMFORMITY TO MS

Generally. there are two methods to provide evidence of imported construction products
conformance to corresponding MS, i.e through Product Certification and, Consignment
Test. Both of these methods are described as below:

6.1. Product Certification (PC) Method

a) This method can further be categorised into two. In this method the importer
can appoint any Local or Foreign CB for the issuance of PC. Hence it can be
categorised as follows:

i) LOCAL Category
In this category, the PC is issued by a local CB accredited by
STANDARDS MALAYSIA or that which has been approved by
CIDB.

ii) FOREIGN Category


In this category, the PC is issued by a foreign CB at source country
which is accredited by an accreditation body in that country and must
be members of PAC IAF, MLA, APLAC, ILAC, and MRA signatories.
However, in exceptional circumstances CIDB may have a direct
arrangement with the CB as and when necessary.
8
b) Any surveillance audits made by the CB concerned must be submitted in a
single report to CIDB within the PC validity period.

c) Importers shall submit a complete sets of documents for the application for
verification of products.
A completed online e-permit application/Borang Q1 (in cases of
Service disruptions in the e-permit system)
Copy of BL
Building Materials Import Procedures

Original Letter of Certification by manufacturer or exporter


Original receipt fees payment
Copy of Packing List and Invoice
Certified True Copy of PC* / Original Certificate of Full Test on
Consignment (UPK)
Copy of Malaysian Company Registration (SSM) for first time
applicants (exceptional to contractors).
Copy of Mill Certificate whenever necessary for construction
products.

d) PCs issued to Malaysian importers or directly to foreign manufacturers are non


transferrable without prior CIDB approval.

e) CIDB will carry out market sampling and results from product tests will be
given out to the relevant CBs.

f) Upon the issuance of PC the importer shall make arrangements for CIDB
officers to visit plant for inspection and product verification. The importer is
required to make all essential arrangements with the foreign manufacturer to
expedite the plant inspection. All travel expenses, air tickets, visa, airport tax/
passenger surcharge as well as accommodations and transportation to and
from the plant will be borne by the importer.

g) The importers adopting this method of confirmity will hold the responsibility
in assuring the confirmity of products to MS specification especially product
marking.

*Notes:
Copy of PC can be certified by
i. Respective CB
ii. CIDB Managerial level and above
iii. Commission of Oath

6.2. Laboratory Test Report

Laboratory Test Report is an alternative to importing products without PC. This


method is especially suitable for importers that are importing products on
cosignment basis for a relatively short period of time.
The Laboratory Test Report can be further categorised into four as follows:

i. Laboratory Test Report UPK1


ii. Laboratory Test Report with Double Inspection UPK2
iii. Laboratory Test Report (3 months validity period) UPK3
iv. Laboratory Test Report (Self Regulation) UPK4

a) Laboratory Test Report UPK1

There are two(2) choices for importers in this method:

i. Testing by local lab


In this case, the importer must contact any local Laboratories for sample 9
collection. The report will be valid for one (1) verification application
only.

ii. Testing by Foreign lab


The test may be conducted in a foreign laboratory at the source
country prior to import. It is very important for the importer to
submit the laboratory particulars to CIDB for verification. Then the
importer will make necessary arrangements for CIDB officers to

Building Materials Import Procedures


collect sample at the plant and send it to the appointed laboratory.

The product sample may be taken from a batch of construction products or


consignment intended for import in accordance to the following terms:
Test results are valid for a period of 6 months from date of issue
provided the importer has not yet imported the said products.

The Report is valid for one(1) application for product verification


only. However for sample collected by represenntative of the
foreign laboratory a Critical Test must be conducted on the
product.

Reports must be in the English Language and in accordance to CIDB
approved format.

b) Laboratory Test Report with Double Inspection UPK2



The sampling of products for a Full Test and Product Verification is
simultaneously made in the exporting country. The importer will be
responsible for making arrangements for CIDB to verify and collect
product samples for a full test in the exporting country. Tests shall
be conducted in any CIDB approved laboratories. The required
test report must be submitted to CIDB before the transportation of
the products to Malaysia point of entry. Upon the approval of the
conformance of the test report then the products can be transported
to the country. A second verification visit will be made by CIDB
officer at the point of entrance. A COA will be issued on the same
day provided all declarations are in order. This method can only be
applied for imports via land with fixed quantities and on the same day.
For this method the importer can used local laboratory or laboratory
at source country. For the later the importer needs to obtain prior
approval from CIDB before appointing the laboratory.
c) Laboratory Type Test Report (3 months validity period) UPK3

CIDB officers will collect product samples from the manufacturing plant for
Consignment Full Test (UPK). The test report is valid for a period of 6 months
from the date of issuance. CIDB will issue the Consignment Full Test Certificate
upon receive the application for the delivery of the first consignment. This
certificate is valid for 3 months from the date of the first COA issued.

Importers are given options of having their products tested in a local or foreign
laboratory.

Notes:
i. Importers are required to submit a full set of documents to CIDB for
10 verification purposes at the Malaysian point of entry as stipulated in the
procedure for Importation via Product Certification, Copies of Product
Certification replaced by certified true copies of Test Results. Importers
must bear all test cost.
ii. Only declared products/models that have been passed will be cleared for
import.
iii. Only cement products are subjected to a Compulsory Critical Test on every
consignment.

d) Laboratory Test Report (Self Regulation) UPK4


Building Materials Import Procedures

This method is meant for importers who engaged the services of third party
inspection body for the purposes of certifying products to MS. This IB must
be accredited by a recognised AB. Those using this method are required to
submit their IB details to CIDB for validation. They are further required to
make essential arrangements between CIDB and the related IB, prior to actual
import of the products. The importer is also required to submit a full inspection
report from the IB to CIDB for each consignment imported.

IMPORTANT NOTES :

i. In circumstances of scepticism arising over the construction product,


much after it has undergone and passed its consignment tests as well
as been awarded a PC; CIDB reserves its right to order the importer
to conduct extra tests such as a full test or critical test as deem fit
on the consignment. The importer will be required to immediately
arrange the test procedure and submit its results to CIDB.

ii. For importers or manufacturers which their lab are SAMM accredited
can conduct a full or critical test under the supervision of a CIDB
officer.

iii. The importer is prohibited from taking samples of products and send
them to a laboratory.

Notes :
CIDB is not responsible nor be held responsible for any loss/damage
on property or, any damage or injury whether directly or indirectly on
individual persons during a sampling or verification procedure by CIDB/
CB/agents or any authorised personnel to undertake the procedure with/
without CIDBs prior consent.
