CIDB issues construction products list according to Amendment of Fourth Schedule

KUALA LUMPUR (Oct 5): The Construction Industry Development Board of Malaysia (CIDB) has issued the CIDB (Amendment of Fourth Schedule) Order 2021, to ensure that the list of products and construction materials contained in the schedule is in accordance with the latest standards set.

In a statement on Monday, CIDB announced that the Amendment of Fourth Schedule under the CIDB Act (Act 520) was gazetted on Sept 10 and enforced on Sept 13, to update the list of products and construction materials.

According to the statement, a total of 22 new products were included, comprising one product in the glass category, five iron and steel products, 16 Industrialised Building System (IBS) component products and 28 additional standards.

“The amendment is aimed at ensuring that every product and construction material used is in compliance with the latest standards set to ensure public safety and health, as well as to protect consumers from getting products and construction materials of low quality,” it said.

It also said that enforcement would start on March 2022, in a move to give the industry a chance to be more prepared in observing the amendment and taking appropriate action.

It said that a circular on the amendment and date of enforcement had been issued to all parties, whether individuals or organisations, who deal, operate, use, manufacture, supply, market, transfer, sell or buy, whether wholesale or retail, import or export products and building materials listed in the fourth schedule.

Under Act 520, any party found guilty of dealing with products and construction materials listed in the Fourth Schedule without CIDB certification could be fined not less than RM10,000 but not exceeding RM500,000, it said.

The statement said that application to obtain the Certificate of Standards Compliance (PPS) could be made through ccpm.cidb.gov.my and the CIDB (Amendment of Fourth Schedule) Order 2021 can be downloaded from the official CIDB website (www.cidb.gov.my).
