Detail * Although no import control policy on secondhand electric goods, "the Environmental Quality (Scheduled Wastes) Regulation, 2005(external link)" regulates import of "waste from electrical and electronic assemblies containing components such as accumulators, mercury-switches, glass from CRT and other activated glass or PCB capacitor, or contaminated with cadmium mercury, lead, nickel, chromium, copper, lithium, silver, manganese or PCB".

* E-waste is regulated as hazardous waste in the Environmental Quality 2005. Waste is all SW110.

* “Guidelines For The Classification Of Used Electronic and Electrical Equipment in Malaysia, 2010 (Second Edition)”(external link) is issued in order to assist all parties concerned (waste generator, transporter, importer/exporter and relevant authorities) in identifying and classifying a used electrical and electronic equipment or component, whether it is categorized as an e-waste and thus prescribed under the First Schedule of the Environmental Quality (Scheduled Wastes) Regulations 2005.
