ASEAN NCAP labelling guideline compliance to become compulsory from March 2020

PUTRAJAYA, Starting March 1 next year, automotive companies selling motor vehicles in Malaysia will be compelled to comply with the ASEAN New Car Assessment Programme (ASEAN NCAP) Labelling Guideline.

Minister of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail said the enforcement of the labelling guideline issued by the Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research (MIROS) would benefit car manufacturers and consumers alike, especially in the improvement of vehicle safety features and specifications.

Once it became compulsory, companies found using fake labels or other than issued by MIROS will face action under the Trade Descriptions Act 2011, which carries a maximum jail term of three years, or fine of RM100,000 for individual and RM250,000 for the company upon conviction, he said.
