‘Bring MPOB permission letter during MCO period’

Palm oil industry players have been told to bring along a copy of Malaysian Palm Oil Board’s (MPOB) permission letter when undertaking the transactions and movements of palm oil products during the movement control order (MCO) period.

The permission letter can be downloaded via the MPOB website, MPOB director-general Dr Ahmad Parveez Ghulam Kadir (pic) said in a statement yesterday.

The letter should be presented to the authorities as a permit to carry out the operations of buying, selling, and moving of palm oil products, he said.

Parties involved in such transactions are also required to present copies of MPOB licences or any related documents for the movements of palm oil products, such as the handover of oil palm fruits by smallholders.

“The MPOB would also like to advise the industry to comply with the regulations for transactions and movements of palm oil products under the movement control order and all instructions of the National Security Council,” he added.
