Expansion of The PSMB Act, 2001
PSMB has been entrusted by the Government to administer and manage the Human Resources Development Fund (HRDF) for the purpose of training, retraining and skills upgrading of the Malaysian workforce in the private sector.
In implementing PSMB's first strategic thrust, that is, to increase the number of workers covered by HRDF, PSMB has embarked on the expansion of the scope of coverage of the PSMB Act, 2001 from existing 44 sub-sectors to 63 sub-sectors.
Section 49 of the PSMB Act, 2001 stipulates that the Honourable Minister may, from time to time, by order published in the Gazette, add to, delete from, vary or amend the First Schedule of the PSMB Act, 2001. In order to expand the coverage of the Act to 19 new sub-sectors as mentioned above, the First Schedule of the PSMB Act, 2001 has been amended accordingly. Eventually, on 21 April 2014, the Pembangunan Sumber Manusia Berhad (Amendment of First Schedule) Order 2014 was duly gazetted.
Effective date for the expansion of coverage to the 19 new sub-sectors is 1 JUNE 2014
