Metal scrap exports to Malaysia - Update about new pre-shipment rules as reported by Malaysian Non Ferrous Metal Association*
On 8 March 2021 BIR published an information received from the Malaysian Non Ferrous Metal Association of the publication of Guidelines regarding pre-shipment inspections of all metal scrap exports to Malaysia.
BIR is in the process of checking with the Malaysian Government the applicability of those guidelines as published by SIRIM and reported by MNFMA.
Until further clarification is obtained from Malaysian authorities, those guidelines are to be considered as purely indicative by BIR members.
We will keep BIR members informed about further developments.
