Why is ISO 9001 important for CIDB?

Sep 16, 2021
CIDB is the Construction Industry Development Board established under the Construction Industry Development Board Act (Act 520) and among its functions are to promote and stimulate the development, improvement, and expansion of the construction industry. Under Act 520, it is mandatory for all contractors (local or foreign) to register with the Construction Industry Development Board Malaysia (CIDB) prior to undertaking and completing any construction work in Malaysia.

There are a few grades of registration – Local Contractor Registration Certificate (PPK) & Government Work Procurement Certificate (SPKK) from G1 to G7. The difference in the grade is the value of work or the limit of the tender figure. To participate in any government work procurement in construction, the contractor needs to register as an SPKK holder. While registering as an SPKK G7 contractor, a valid ISO 9001 certification is a must. With the valid ISO 9001, ISO 14001 & OHSAS 18001/ISO 45001 certificate, the registered contractor can be considered to have 40 CCD points. Besides, the ISO 9001 certificate can increase the SCORE of the contractor.
