Malaysia & Taiwan to Spur Growth of Nanotechnology
Nanotechnology, it’s a very tangible technology nowadays, with many nanotechnology products now in Malaysia, ranging from cosmetics and cleaning solutions to home appliances and fertilizers. Just recently, NANOVerify Sdn. Bhd. (NVSB), Malaysia’s first and only nanotechnology verification body, and the Taiwan Nanotechnology Industry Development Association (TANIDA), have announced a mutual nano-verification mark recognition programme that is set to open up trade and drive market penetration of nanotechnology based products in both countries.

What is the NANOVerify Programme?
As can be seen from their website at www.nanoverify.com.my, the NANOVerify Programme is a voluntary certification programme for processes and products with claims of nano-elements in the range of 1 to 100 nanometre. This programme is the first voluntary nano-certification programme in Malaysia and the sixth of its kind in the world.

Mutual Verification Mark Recognition Programme To Oversee 100 New Certified Nano-Products Come 2019
The programme enables certified nanotechnology products from the respective verification programmes to receive equal recognition in both Malaysia and Taiwan. This is projected to enable the certification of over 100 new nanotechnology products in Malaysia within the next 12-months, as well as facilitate the entry of more than 20 domestic companies into the Taiwanese market.
The programme, endorsed by the TANIDA-NVSB steering committee in conjunction with the Asian Nano Forum (ANF) 2018, in Taipei, Taiwan, allows applicants to enjoy expedited verification processes thanks to integrated test lab facilities. In addition, the synergistic co-operation is focused on developing strategic campaigns to encourage ‘nano-technopreneurs’ and businesses to certify their products in order to differentiate themselves in an increasingly crowded market space.

SIRIM QAS International Collaboration
In collaboration with SIRIM QAS International, NVSB operates the NANOVerify Programme, a voluntary certification programme for processes and products with claims of nano-elements and nano-enhancements. Meanwhile, TANIDA oversees the operations of Taiwan’s NanoMark, for similar verification and recognition.
There are currently 34 certified nanotechnology products in Malaysia, ranging from cosmetics and cleaning solutions to home appliances and fertilizers, with growing interest from industry players. Interested business can attend the upcoming NANOVerify Certification Workshop to be held at Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre on 20 June 2018.
