If you need to import goods or services, a onetime registration procedure is being completed in most of the countries.  Such import export licence may be obtained from concerned government department of Malaysia if required.

To import or export goods which require a license, traders first must register with the Companies Commission of Malaysia. Once registered, a company must then apply for an import license from the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI). The Ministry of International Trade and Industry (Malay: Kementerian Perdagangan Antarabangsa dan Industri), abbreviated MITI, is a ministry of the Government of Malaysia that is responsible for international trade, industry, investment, productivity, small and medium enterprise, development finance institution, Halal industry, automotive, steel, strategic trade. Malaysia uses a privatized single digital window for all import and export regulations called Dagang Net.

For eg, Imports of meat and poultry are regulated through licensing and sanitary controls. All imported beef, lamb, and poultry products must originate from facilities that have been approved by Malaysian authorities as “halal” or halal certificate from the Department of Islamic Development of Malaysia (JAKIM)., or acceptable for consumption by Muslims.
