Country Codes Malaysia

The Malaysian Code on Corporate Governance (MCCG) first issued in March 2000, marked a significant milestone in corporate governance reform in Malaysia. The Code was later revised in 2007 to strengthen the roles and responsibilities of the board of directors, audit committee and the internal audit function, and again in 2012. In 2017, the MCCG, takes on a new approach to promote greater internalisation of corporate governance culture. In 2014, the Malaysian Code for Institutional Investors was launched jointly by the Securities Commission Malaysia and Minority Shareholders Watchdog Group (MSWG).
