Construction materials fall under the CIDB Act 520 that was amended in 2011. One of the provisions in the amendment is materials must comply to specific mandatory standards.
The objective is to ensure compliance to Malaysian Standard and to avoid use of substandard products. However, not all construction materials fall under the enforcement.
There are policies (circulars and directives) that industry players must be aware of as well as guidelines, directory and publications that would assist from planning to execution.
