Product Registration

Our range of consultancy services extends to product registration with NPCB (National Pharmaceutical Control Bureau). Under Malaysia’s Control of Drugs and Cosmetics Regulations 1984, registration is mandatory for all pharmaceutical and cosmetic products (unless specifically exempted by the Regulations) before they can be manufactured, distributed or imported into Malaysia.

Since only Malaysian companies may apply for product registration, a foreign company will have to appoint a Market Authorisation Holder (MAH) as their local representative to obtain product registration. The Product Registration Holder will then be responsible for all matters relating to product quality, safety and efficacy.

We offer advisory and consultancy services for obtaining product registration for cosmetic, beauty and skin care products, as well as herbal products and traditional medicines.

Trademarks Act 2019

Dear Valued Clients & Associates

We are pleased to announce that the long-awaited overhaul of trademark laws in Malaysia is finally coming to fruition. The all-new Trademarks Bill 2019 was tabled in the Malaysian Parliament on 11 April 2019 and was approved, with some amendments, by the Lower House (Dewan Rakyat) on 02 July 2019 and the Upper House (Dewan Negara) on 23 July. Pending royal assent, it is now most certain that the new Act will come into effect by the last quarter of this year.

We will keep you apprised when the Trademarks Act 2019 becomes enforceable and the accompanying Trademark Regulations are issued.
