MALAYSIA

In Indonesia FCM are regulated by the Food Act of 1983
The regulation provides specific limitations for packaging releasing some heavy metals (lead, antimony,arsenic,cadmium) to food, and prohibit polyvinyl chloride packaging that contains more than 1 mg/kg of vinyl chloride monomer.Under the Malaysian Food Regulations of 1985, no provisions prescribe those substances that may or may not be used in food packaging (i.e., a "positive" or "negative" list). Thus, provided the above standards are met with respect to vinyl chloride monomer content in polyvinyl chloride packaging, and the packaging is considered safe and suitable for the intended use, the packaging may be considered safe under Malaysian law.
