|AMCHAM Update #265 COVID-19 Outbreak|
During this period of Movement Control Order (MCO), AMCHAM will be bringing you daily updates on the latest COVID-19 developments, which includes the efforts of the Government and initiatives from other bodies and organizations.
|Reminder: Please Update Details on CIMS 3.0|
AMCHAM would like to remind all our member companies to update your company details on the COVID-19 Intelligent Management System (CIMS) 3.0 (https://notification.miti.gov.my/login
) by the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI).
The registration on CIMS 3.0 will help the Government monitor business operations during the period of Movement Control Order and authorities are highly dependent on CIMS 3.0 to verify the movement status for companies operating in areas.
|Register with AMCHAM's SCAN Tool|
AMCHAM’s Supply Chain Audit Network (SCAN) Tool was developed to allow member companies to better understand their supply chain ecosystem. Member companies are able to upload a list of suppliers and monitor their compliance with prescribed SOPs and guidelines through a set of checklists.
In light of the current COVID-19 situation, we would strongly encourage our member companies who are not yet using the SCAN Tool to do so and register with us. Please reach out to Bryan at email@example.com
