1. 20S006R2: Lampholders for tubular fluorescent lamps and starterholders (First revision)
(IEC 60400:2017+AMD1:2020, IDT)
This document states the technical and dimensional requirements for lampholders for tubular fluorescent lamps and for starterholders, and the methods of test to be used in determining the safety and the fit of the lamps in the lampholders and the starters in the starterholders.

This document covers independent lampholders and lampholders for building-in, used with tubular fluorescent lamps provided with caps as listed in Annex A, and independent starterholders and starterholders for building-in, used with starters in accordance withIEC 60155, intended for use in AC circuits where the working voltage does not exceed1 000 V r.m.s.

This document also covers lampholders for single-capped tubular fluorescent lamps integrated in an outer shell and dome similar to Edison screw lampholders (e.g. for G23 and G24 capped lamps). Such lampholders are tested in accordance with the following clauses and subclauses of IEC 60238: 9.4; 9.5; 9.6; 10.3; 11.7; 12; 13.2; 13.5; 13.6; 13.7; 14; 16.3; 16.4; 16.5 and 16.9.

This document also covers lampholders which are integral with a luminaire or intended to be built into appliances. It covers the requirements for the lampholder only. For all other requirements, such as protection against electric shock in the area of the terminals, the requirements of the relevant appliance standard are applicable and tested after building into the appropriate equipment, when that equipment is tested according to its own standard.

Lampholders for use by luminaire manufacturers only are not for retail sale.This document also applies, as far as is reasonable, to lampholders and starterholders other than the types explicitly mentioned above and to lamp connectors. Where the term "holder" is used in this document, both lampholders and starterholders are intended. Where the term "bi-pin lampholder" is used, lampholders for wedged caps are also intended.

2. 20S007R1: LED modules for general lighting – Performance requirements (First revision)
(IEC 62717:2014+AMD1:2015+AMD2:2019, IDT)
This International Standard specifies the performance requirements for LED modules, together with the test methods and conditions, required to show compliance with this standard. The following types of LED modules are distinguished and schematically shown in

Figure 1: Type 1: integrated LED modules for use on d.c. supplies up to 250 V or on a.c. supplies up to 1 000 V at 50 Hz or 60 Hz.

Type 2: LED modules operating with part of separate controlgear connected to the mainsvoltage, and having further control means inside ("semi-integrated") for operation underconstant voltage, constant current or constant power.

Type 3: LED modules where the complete controlgear is separate from the module (nonintegrated) for operation under constant voltage, constant current or constant power.

1. IKM15ISC/B-137R2: Household insecticide products – Space spray aerosol – Chemical, physical and biological efficacy requirements (Second revision) This Malaysian Standard specifies the chemical, physical and biological efficacy requirements of space spray aerosol intended for household use against mosquitoes, houseflies and other flying insects.

NOTE. Attention is drawn to the mandatory requirement that insecticide aerosol marketed in the country is to be registered with the Pesticides Board under the Pesticides Act 1974 (Amendment 2004).

2. IKM15ISC/B-158R2: Household insecticide products – Cockroach bait – Chemical, physical and biological efficacy requirements (First revision) This Malaysian Standard specifies minimum chemical, physical and biological efficacy requirements for bait in enclosed form (containerised bait or bait station) and loose form intended for household use against cockroach

NOTE. Attention is drawn to the mandatory requirement that cockroach containerised bait and cockroach loose bait marketed in the country is to be registered with the Pesticides Board under the Pesticides Act 1974 (Amendment 2004)

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.

NSC H – Petroleum and Gas
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).
