Construction Materials / Products Certification

It is stipulated in Lembaga Pembangunan Industri Pembinaan Malaysia Act 520 (Amendment 2011) only building materials which have received the Standard Compliance Declaration (Perakuan Pematuhan Standard or PPS) can be used in construction projects (Schedule 4 of the Act). The main technical document required for consideration of PPS is the Product Certification (PC) or Full Type Test Report (FTTR) issued by any recognized accrediting body.

Therefore, CIDB Holdings, in its effort to uphold the requirements of the Act offers product certification services to end users, importers and manufacturers. CIDB Holdings as a Certification Body (CB) has been accredited by the Standards Malaysia in compliance to International Standard ISO/IEC 17065. We have qualified and experienced auditors capable to perform on-site inspection, factory audit and product sampling.

CIDBH Product Certification is recognised to certify various construction materials/products to fulfil CIDB requirements namely ceramic tiles, sanitary wares, glass for construction, radiant barrier and iron & steel including deformed bar, wire rod, steel beam, scaffoldings, wire mesh, wire rope etc. We also able to certify water supplies such as taps & mixers, flush valve and fittings mechanism in order to comply with standards/regulators requirements.
