Dear Valued Customer,
Authorities in Malaysia have decided to reinforce a law with respect to the acceptance of transshipment of IMO cargo in Malaysian ports. As a consequence the acceptance of IMO classes 1 and 7 for transshipment in Malaysian ports will stop with immediate effect.

Secondly all dangerours cargo destined to Malaysia or calling Malaysian ports in transit – even if not leaving the vessel – need to be accompanied by following documents (in English language):

  • IMO class 1 requires a MSDS (material data security sheet) and an EUS (end user statement) if touching Malaysian ports.
  • All other IMO classes require a MSDS if the vessel is touching Malaysian ports, this includes transit and transshipment.

The MSDS and EUS documents needs to be sent to Maersk Line before we get an approval for IMO cargo. Please note that shipment can not be realized without mentioned documents.

For any questions, please do not hesitate and contact your local Maersk Line customer service representative.

With best regards
