NSC D – Building, Construction and Civil Engineering
1. 21D001R1: Metal scaffolding – Part 4: Temporary works equipment – Section 1: Scaffolds –Performance requirements and general design (First revision) This Malaysian Standard specifies performance requirements and methods of structural and general design for access the working scaffold, referred to from hereon as working scaffolds. Requirements given are for scaffold structures which rely on the adjacent structures stability. In general, these requirements also apply to other types of working scaffolds. Normal requirements are set down, but there is also provision for special cases.

This Malaysian Standard specifies performance requirements and methods of structural and general design for access the working scaffold, referred to from hereon as working scaffolds. Requirements given are for scaffold structures which rely on the adjacent structures stability. In general, these requirements also apply to other types of working scaffolds. Normal requirements are set down, but there is also provision for special cases.

The standard exclude:

- Platforms suspended by ropes, whether fixed or movable;

- Horizontally movable platforms including Mobile Access Towers (MAT);

- power-operated platforms;

- scaffolds used as protection for roof work;

- temporary roofs.

1. 18H002R4: Storage, handling and transportation of liquefied petroleum gases (LPG) - Code of practice(Fourth revision) This Malaysian Standard specifies requirements for the location, design, construction, commissioning and operation of installations for the storage and handling of LPG.

This standard is not applied to the following:.

a) Refrigerated storage of LPG or refrigeration systems.

b) Plant or equipment in which LPG is processed or produced, or vessels which form an integral part of that processing equipment (but do include post manufacturing storage).

c) Industrial gas-consuming equipment (see MS 930).

d) Installation of consumer piping or appliances (see MS 930).

e) Marine and pipeline terminals, natural gas processing plants or petrochemical plants (excluding refineries).

NSC L -Transport
1. 19L017N – Palm methyl esters (PME) diesel - Vehicle testing methodology This Malaysian Standard specifies the requirements and guidelines for palm methyl esters (PME) diesel vehicle testing methodology, which includes the laboratory and on-road vehicle testing.
NSC S - Electrical and Electronics Equipment and Accessories
1. 20S004R1:MS IEC 60598-1 Luminaires – Part 1: General Requirements and Tests (Fourth Revision) (IEC 60598-1:2021, IDT) This Part 1 of IEC 60598 specifies general requirements for luminaires, incorporating electric light sources for operation from supply voltages up to 1 000 V. The requirements and relatedtests of this document cover: classification, marking, mechanical construction, electrical construction and photobiological safety.
2. 20S017R1: MS IEC 60068-2-26Environmental Testing – Part 2-6: Tests – Test FC: Vibration (Sinusoidal)(First Revision)(IEC 60068-2-6:2007, IDT) This part of IEC 60068 gives a method of test which provides a standard procedure to determine the ability of components, equipment and other articles, hereinafter referred to as specimens, to withstand specified severities of sinusoidal vibration. If an item is to be tested in an unpackaged form, that is without its packaging, it is referred to as a test specimen. However, if the item is packaged then the item itself is referred to as a product and the item and its packaging together are referred to as a test specimen.

The purpose of this test is to determine any mechanical weakness and/or degradation in the specified performance of specimens and to use this information, in conjunction with therelevant specification, to decide upon the acceptability of the specimens. In some cases, the test method may also be used to demonstrate the mechanical robustness of specimens and/or to study their dynamic behaviour. Categorization of components can also be made on the basis of a selection from within the severities quoted in the test.
