About Us

In the year 2001, the Malaysian Rubber Export Promotion Council (MREPC) established its USA office for the purpose of:

Promoting Standard Malaysian Gloves (SMG) and other rubber products in the USA.
Addressing public and user concerns on protein allergy associated with natural rubber latex gloves, catheters, condoms, balloons and other products, by providing balanced and accurate information to correct misinformation and improve understanding about the technical and environmental merits of Malaysian rubber products, especially natural rubber latex gloves. This is undertaken via proactive educational activities through seminars, workshops and media outreach programs.
Working closely with standards and regulatory authorities such as the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) and the Food and Drugs Administration (FDA), as well as liaising with other interest groups in the US to ensure that Malaysian rubber products constantly comply with all requirements in terms of quality, safety, reliability and environmental concerns.
