A Purpose-Driven Institution... 

Standards Malaysia was established on 28 August, 1996 and is governed by the Standards of Malaysia Act 1996 (Act 549), an agency under the Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation (MOSTI).

Over the past 17 years, more than 6300 Malaysian Standards (MS) have been developed to meet the demands of 24 core industries as well as to offer pragmatic global solutions.

MS Status as of Minister Approval on 6 January 2014

To gain a competitive advantage in global export markets, Malaysia - through Standards Malaysia - is also a member to International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and International Electro-technical Commission (IEC). Owing to this, the Malaysian Standards (MS) are recognized by many countries.

Similarly, with world-class accreditation services, 4 flagship accreditation schemes, and Malaysia's very own Malaysian-accredited Logo; Standards Malaysia is well positioned to introduce Malaysia and Malaysian products and services as reflecting the best in quality and safety for the world.
