Sample article from our Government & Public Policy

LOS ANGELES , January 7, 2022 () –

Malaysia’s state authority Sirim announced the Southeast Asian nation will begin permitting imports of recovered paper products and grades beginning Jan. 10, Euwid reported on Jan. 7.

Malaysia will not accept mixed paper products, but it will accept used containerboard and other waste paper grades, regardless of wood-containing compositions.

Sirim’s inspection process for all recovered paper imports will depend on whether the products come from exporters that also operate Sirim-certified materials recovery facilities.
