Regulation 4(1)(a) of IGMPER requires meat, poultry or eggs to be imported with a health certificate issued by an issuing entity recognised by Director of Food and Environmental Hygiene of Hong Kong. As of now, the recognised issuing entities for Malaysia are as follows: (
For poultry and eggs from Malaysia only - Malaysian Ministry of Agriculture and Agro-Based Industry (MOA)

For eggs from Sarawak only - Sabah's State Veterinary Authority 

Therefore, the Malaysian factory needs to apply with the relevant Ministry and departments above before it can be allowed to export to Hong Kong. 

It was informed by Malaysian Ministry of Agriculture that interested Malaysian companies have to submit an official application to the Department of Veterinary Services Malaysia (DVS), accompanied with the completed HK import application forms if available.
