MCMC to Android box sellers: Stop misrepresenting certification label on the devices (MY)

The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) has issued a stern warning to Android box suppliers and sellers not to misuse the SIRIM certification and MCMC-certified label on the devices to mislead the public into believing that it has approved the act of illegally streaming and downloading media content on them.

In a press statement posted on Twitter, the Commission explained that the MCMC label and certification issued by SIRIM on certain Android TV boxes are only meant to state that the WiFi and Bluetooth modules on the devices have complied with technical standards imposed by MCMC.

If it discovers that sellers have misused the certifications, MCMC stated that it will not hesitate to take action such as revoking the certification label on the Android boxes and issuing a recall of all sold Android boxes as well as those still in the market.

From October 2018 to January 2020, MCMC issued compound notices totalling RM67,000 on four offences related to the buying and selling of uncertified Android TV boxes. It added that seven cases were brought to court, resulting in fines totaling RM194,500 in the same time period.
