SSM Receives MBOR Recognition For Digital CTC Implementation
PRESS RELEASE: BERNAMA, JULY 17, 2017
KUALA LUMPUR, July 17 (Bernama) -- The Companies Commission of Malaysia (SSM) today made history when it was recognised by the Malaysia Book of Records (MBOR) as the first government agency to implement the Digital Certified True Copy (CTC) service.
Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Minister, Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin said the development of Digital CTC by SSM was in line with the objectives of the National Blue Ocean Strategy under the Economic Transformation Programme (ETP).
"We are proud of the recognition given by the Malaysia Book of Records," he said after announcing the matter at SSM's Aidilfitri do, here, today.
Digital CTC is a transformation of the manual document authentication service through a combination of statutory imaging technology, digital signature, date time stamping and Quick Response Code (QR code) with security features.
SSM offers the Digital CTC to customers for copies of document images in collaboration with SSM's service provider Big Dataworks Sdn Bhd, and Post Digicert Sdn Bhd, a licensed certification authority approved by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) under the Digital Signature Act 1997.
The collaboration has resulted in transformation through a creative and systematic way of creating high value at low cost for the country.
In addition to ensuring the validity of documents issued by SSM, Digital CTC also prevents forging of documents by irresponsible individuals.
Also present at the event were Communications and Multimedia Deputy Minister, Datuk Jailani Johari and SSM chief executive officer, Datuk Zahrah Abd Wahab Fenner.
Meanwhile, Zahrah said via the Digital CTC, any amendment to the documents would be made available and could be checked through digital and printed copies.
"Its implementation (Digital CTC) has a significant impact on resources, such as reduced paper and toner use," said Zahrah.
The system was introduced in February, and as of June 2017, it had recorded a total of 132,998 transactions, with total revenue of RM2.62 million.
Digital CTC products can be accessed through the MyData SSM portal http://www.mydata-ssm.com.my, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Earlier, Hamzah signed the Malaysia Book of Records symbolic plaque, and presented a mock cheque of SSM's contribution of RM5,000 to Rumah Penyayang Darul Ilmi, Gombak, as well as raya money to 51 orphans.
