But not for consumer products, according to a recent article:

The classification and communication of chemical hazard labelling will be implemented in the industrial and agriculture sectors apart from consumer products by 2010, said Deputy Human Resource Minister Datuk Noraini Ahmad…

“Unlike in the European countries, Malaysia was a bit slow in implementing the GHS because it had to be carried out in stages and with the agreement of the other nine Asean countries,” she told reporters after opening the two-day Chemical Management at the Work Place Seminar here Wednesday…

Noraini said after the implementation of the GHS, all imported products would be uniformly labelled and classified to facilitate their usage in the chemical industry. “For example, the chemical elements in imported hair shampoos sold in Malaysia were not uniformly labelled and unclear because of the differences in labelling definitions, thus they needed to be harmonised,” she said.
