CIDB and SIRIM held a meeting with the MISIF Steel Wire Group and SWAM task force on 27 November 2020. The regulators urged the industry to fully comply with the Fourth Schedule of the CIDB Act (Act 520). Members were reminded that any person who deals or undertakes to deal with uncertified construction materials, also commonly known as CQ mesh, shall be guilty of an offence and shall be liable to a fine of not less than RM10,000 but not more than RM500,000.
Enforcement shall be stepped up during the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) and strict actions taken to any producers who do not comply. In this regard, the Secretariat has attached a copy of Act 520 for your reference.
