KUALA LUMPUR (July 7): The Malaysian Association of Hotels (MAH) today launched the first ever industry-wide hygiene and safety label in the country amidst the Covid-19 pandemic.
The hygiene and safety label known as the “Clean & Safe Malaysia” certification programme is designed specifically for hotels and resorts in compliance with both local regulatory requirements and international standards.
“The Clean & Safe Malaysia hygiene and safety label extends beyond regulatory requirements, with the ultimate goal of not only ensuring its implementation but also continuous compliance for peace of mind of travellers staying at certified hotels,” said MAH CEO Yap Lip Seng (pictured).
MAH has appointed Bureau Veritas Malaysia (BVM) as the independent auditor to audit and monitor participating hotels. The general public can also access information of these hotels on its website.
Every hotel certified will be issued the Clean & Safe Malaysia label and certificate complete with its very own QR code for referencing and verification purposes.
The programme is supported by the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture and will be the benchmark of hygiene and safety standards for the hotel industry of Malaysia.
“There is a need to reassure tourists that Malaysia is ready, and the Clean & Safe Malaysia label is the mark to look out for, with a clear message to the world that Malaysia welcomes you, make us your next destination of choice,” Yap added.
