This significant event was witnessed by the Minister of Works Malaysia, Dato Sri Alexander Nanta Linggi, Deputy Minister of Works, Dato’ Sri Abdul Rahman Bin Haji Abdullah, Secretary General of the Ministry of Works, Datuk Seri Hasnol Zam Zam Bin Haji Ahmad, and Chairman of CIDB Malaysia, Ir Haji Yusuf Bin Haji Abd. Wahab.

The ISO/IEC certification grants international recognition to all Construction Skills Competency Certification (Sijil Kompetensi Kemahiran Pembinaan or SKKP) issued by CIDB Malaysia in the areas of Welding, NDT, and Blasting and Painting. This recognition emphasises CIDB’s commitment to ensuring construction personnel’s competency and skill development.

The achievement marks a crucial step forward in enhancing the international standing of Malaysia’s construction industry.
