SIRIM Industry Standards Development and Consultancy
SIRIM Industry Standards prescribe the way in which the business or production is to be operated, stipulate required practices in the workplace, and ensure quality of production, materials and outsource services. They help organisations gain a competitive edge, drive down costs, boost productivity and improve profits.
Apart from developing SIRIM Industry Standards, we provide consultancy and training on standards, technical regulations and conformity assessments. This also includes consultancy to ensure compliance of product with the relevant standards and regulations, standards and quality infrastructure and economic impact studies.
Our standards implementation training offerings are on various published standards, including Malaysian Standards and SIRIM Industry Standards, as well as international, regional and foreign standards. These are organised to facilitate awareness and understanding of the requirements of the standards.
Malaysia’s WTO/TBT Enquiry Point
The World Trade Organization (WTO) Agreement on Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT Agreement) obliges all member countries to maintain an Enquiry Point that is able to answer questions from interested parties and other WTO Members regarding technical regulations, standards and conformity assessment procedures. The TBT Agreement also requires that WTO Members notify the WTO of proposed technical regulations and conformity assessment procedures so interested parties can become acquainted with them and have an opportunity to submit written comments.
SIRIM Berhad is designated by the government to be the Malaysia’s National WTO-TBT Enquiry Point. SIRIM STS operates the function of the WTO/TBT Enquiry Point on behalf of SIRIM Berhad.

Backed by a pool of experienced team of specific industry trainers and consultants, the objective can be realised through the provision of courses, seminars, workshops, conferences, in-house trainings, packaged training programmes and consultancy services.
