SSM MSIC Code stands for Suruhanjaya Syarikat Malaysia (SSM) Malaysia Standard Industrial Classification (MSIC). It's a system in Malaysia that categorizes businesses based on their economic activities.

Here's some key information about SSM MSIC Codes:

  • Purpose: Helps identify the industry a business belongs to for registration and regulatory purposes.

  • Version: The current version is MSIC 2008, based on the International Standard of Industrial Classification (ISIC) Revision 4.

  • Lookup: You can find the relevant MSIC code for your business using the official MSIC search engine system (

Represent the Business Nature and Activity

SSM MSIC Codes represent the business nature and activity of a company.

Here's a deeper look at how they achieve this:

  • Specificity: Each MSIC code is a unique 5-digit number assigned to a specific type of business activity. For example, code 47214 represents "Retail sale of meat and meat products (including poultry)," while 58211 represents "Publishing of newspapers."

  • Hierarchical Structure: MSIC codes are organized in a hierarchical structure, with broader categories at the beginning and more specific subcategories further along. This allows for a detailed classification of business activities.

  • Industry Coverage: MSIC codes encompass a wide range of industries, from agriculture and manufacturing to information technology and professional services.

By choosing the appropriate MSIC code, you're essentially providing a concise and standardized way to communicate the core nature of what your business does. This benefits both the company and the government:

  • Company Benefits: Choosing the right code ensures you're registered under the appropriate regulations and tax regime for your industry.

  • Government Benefits: MSIC codes help government agencies efficiently categorize businesses for regulatory purposes, track economic activity in different sectors, and develop industry-specific policies.
