Offers/Requests of Assistance
In its first 1540 report, Malaysia noted that it does not require assistance in implementing the provisions of UNSCR 1540 within its territories. Malaysia has officially offered assistance through the 1540 Committee, noting that "Malaysia is willing to consider requests from other States for assistance as appropriate in the areas of legal and regulatory infrastructure, implementation and/or resources for fulfilling the provisions of the Resolution." Since this report was submitted, Malaysia has worked with numerous donor states, particularly the United States and Japan, to improve its strategic trade control system. In 2010, it published its Strategic Trade Act, which established a comprehensive export control system. Malaysia also established a Nuclear Security Support Centre. It has three Megaports—one in Klang, one in Tanjung Pelepas, and one recently established in Penang.
Malaysia also coordinated the following regional workshops in cooperation with other organizations:
- Asia Pacific Biosafety Association (A-PBA) and the Malaysian Biosafety and Biosecurity Association (MBBA)
- Organized a workshop, "Building a Sustainable Biorisk Culture in the Asia-Pacific Region" in April 2013.
- The Malaysian government in cooperation with the UNODA and the EU’BWC Action coordinated Regional Workshop on National Implementation of the Biological Weapons Convention for South and South-East Asia in September 2013.
