This only applies to those in the manufacturing and construction sectors, and can be done through the COVID-19 Intelligent Management System (CIMS 3.0). Those in other sectors can refer to other ministries or agencies.

Employers in manufacturing and construction sectors have to declare the rate of vaccinated employees in the COVID-19 Intelligent Management System (CIMS) 3.0 system, Malaysia’s Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI) reminds.

According to MITI’s announcement, the declaration of employees' vaccination rate in CIMS 3.0 only applies to those in the manufacturing and construction sectors.

“The declaration of vaccination rate for other sectors can be referred to the Ministry/Agency that regulates the respective sectors.

“Upon declaration, the company may download the latest approval letter to operate,” the Ministry added.

For the unacquainted, per caretaker Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin’s announcement on 15 August 2021 (Sunday), the government has agreed to allow all non-essential activities in the manufacturing and construction sectors—along with mining and quarrying—to resume operations from 16 August 2021 in states that are under Phase One, Two, and Three of National Recovery Plan (NRP).

Its operating capacity, however, depends on the rate of complete vaccination of the workers, PM Muhyiddin said.

As it stands, for companies that have 80% to 100% of employees fully-vaccinated, they are allowed to operate with 100% capacity. For those who have:

  • 60% to 79% of employees fully-vaccinated, the operating capacity is at 80%.
  • 40% to 59% of fully-vaccinated workforce, the operating capacity is at 60%.

“Verification of the employee vaccination rates will be done through the COVID-19 Immunisation Taskforce (CITF) under the Ministry of Science, Technology, and Innovation (MOSTI).

“Periodic verification visits will also be carried out by enforcement personnel on manufacturing [and construction] companies,” the Ministry added.
