How to identify medicines that are registered with MOH?

All medicinal products in Malaysia, including imported medicines, must be registered with the Ministry of Health Malaysia (MOH)  before they can be sold or marketed to consumers. Registered medicines must carry both registration numbers (ie  MAL20125467T) and  Meditag Hologram labels on its label or packaging. A valid registration number begins with “MAL”, followed by 8-digit numbers and ends with an alphabet to indicate their registration category. The categories of registered product are as follows:

A – Controlled medicines
X – Over the counter medicines (OTC)
T – Traditional medicines
N – Supplements

Consumers can verify the registration number and view other information related to the medicine at www.pharmacy.gov.my. Any medicine not listed on the website or does not have any of these features can be doubted.
