Puspakom, a leading vehicle inspection company in Malaysia, has announced that it will be ceasing its vehicle inspection services by next year. In response, Minister of Transport Loke Siew Fook has stated that private companies will be allowed to conduct vehicle inspections as an alternative.
Transport Minister Anthony Loke Siew emphasized that the government’s decision to cease Puspakom’s vehicle inspection services is due to its plans to open up the market and allow for healthy competition among inspection companies. The Ministry of Transport will be working closely with the Road Transport Department (JPJ) to ensure a smooth transition to private companies providing vehicle inspection services.
As part of the transition process, Transport Minister Anthony Loke Siew has assured the public that new inspection companies will be required to adhere to strict standards and criteria to ensure the quality of inspections. This will include obtaining necessary certifications and complying with inspection procedures set by the government.
He also highlighted that the ministry will work closely with private companies to ensure that they are well-prepared for the increased demand for vehicle inspections. The government’s ultimate goal is to improve the quality of vehicle inspections in the country while maintaining a competitive market.
