CIMAH Regulations


Malaysia promulgated Control of Industrial Major Accident Hazards (CIMAH) Regulations in February 1996. Since then there have been 159 major hazard installations (MHI) and 321 non-major hazard installations (NMHI).

According to the regulations, the MHI must submit a safety report and emergency response plan (ERP) to the Department of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH) but the NMHI is only required to show its activities are safe and to submit of an emergency response plan (ERP). The importance of the safety report is to identify the nature and scale of use of the dangerous substances, describe the type, relative likelihood and consequences of major accidents and the arrangements for safe operation and control and mitigation of major accidents.
