Franchising & Licensing 

In Malaysia, franchising and licensing are governed under different laws. Franchising is governed under the Franchise Act 1998 (“the Act”) and is regulated by the Registrar of Franchises (“Registrar”) under the purview of Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs. Licensing, on the other hand, is a form of private contract between parties and is governed under the law of contract. As such, if franchising is taken up as a mean of business expansion, then compliance with the Act is necessary and registration with the Registrar is also required. Licensing, on the other hand, is a contractual arrangement between parties and such contract has to be precisely drafted to reflect the parties’ intention and has to comply with the law of contract.

Franchising and licensing have always been mixed up by business owners, as both models share the similar elements. For instance, both franchising and licensing resemblance have the resemblance of granting rights to use a brand name to another party in running the business.

In a franchise model, the franchisor will grant to the franchisee the right to use the trademark and the established system in running the business. In consideration, the franchisee will pay all relevant fee e.g. one-off franchise fee, royalty payment and etc stipulated in the franchise agreement to the franchisor. The franchise agreement shall also contain all mandatory requirements as stipulated in the Act, failing which  shall render a franchise agreement null and void.

On the other hand, in a licensing model, the licensor will grant to the licensee the right to use the intellectual property including trademark, trade secrets, confidential information and etc in running the business. In consideration, the licensee will pay all relevant fee e.g. one-off licensing fee, commission and etc stipulated in the licensing agreement to the licensor. However, unlike a franchise model, a licensor has far less control on the licensee’s daily business operation.

Comparison Between Franchising and Licensing Model:

Training and Support

In a franchise model, the franchisor will provide training to the franchisee prior to the operation of business whereas in a licensing model, the licensor usually only provides training and support in relation to product knowledge.

Control

In a franchise model, the franchisor has a tighter operational control continuously to mandate how a franchisee should operate the franchised business. There is usually a set of manuals to be followed by the franchisee. In contrast, for a licensing model, the licensor usually has little to no operational control as to how a franchisee should operate the licensed business.

Fee

In a franchise model, the franchisee will pay various fee such as initial franchise fee, royalty fee, advertising fee and etc continuously to the franchisor whereas in a licensing model, the licensee will typically pay only the licensing fee and commission to the licensor.

Choosing the Right Model

There is no right or wrong in choosing either a franchising model or a licensing model in expanding your business. It all rests completely on your needs and goals as a business owner.

Estate Planning

Everyone has an estate. In fact, your estate is made up of everything you own — your car, house, other real estate, accounts for checks and loans, investments, life insurance, furniture, personal belongings. Everyone has an estate and something in common — you cannot take it with you when you die, no matter how large or how modest. Estate planning plans a schedule ahead of time and chooses who you want to obtain the items you own after you die.

That may include a will, term life insurance, and attorney’s powers over your assets and health care decisions for a young family or single adult. Then, as your needs change and your financial condition improve, let your preparation grow and expand. Don’t try to do this yourself to save money. We, Tee Consulting Group can provide essential guidance and peace of mind to ensure that your documents are properly prepared.

The best time to plan your estate is NOW.

Estate planning does not have to be expensive.

ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management Systems

ISO 14001 is an Environmental Management Systems (EMS) under international standard. It is designed to provide the company with the components of an effective environmental management system in order to protect the environment and adapt to changing environmental conditions in line with socio-economic needs, which can also be combined with other criteria of the management system.

ISO 22000:2018 Food Safety Management Systems, HACCP, GMP

ISO 22000:2018 is the latest international standard intended to ensure the global supply of healthy food chains. The aim of ISO 22000, ‘Food safety management systems -Requirements for any food chain organization,’ is to be compliant with the current food safety management tools, ISO 9001:2015 and HACCP, and to expand its scope for greater diligence.

Responsible food producers, like every other business sector, strive to uphold stringent quality standards to ensure that their goods can be consumed by all without fear of health risks. However, with different requirements, food supply chains will stretch across different countries and include several different organizations and subcontractors. Food processing is affected prior to reaching customers by industries ranging from feed suppliers and canners to truckers and retail stores. A single ingredient or poorly run farm, a weak link, can lead to unhealthy food that is harmful to customers. This is a public health threat that can cause tremendous costs for businesses in the food chain and adverse publicity.

ISO 22000 requires all types of organizations to take part in the certification of food safety management systems, as food safety hazards can reach the food chain at any point. Qualified organizations are also those that manufacture the machinery, chemicals, additives, ingredients and packaging involved in food production.

ISO 22000 also expands the effective norm of the ISO 9001 quality management system, which is widely applicable in all industries. The developers correctly predicted that successful food safety programs must be developed and operated within the context of an ISO 9001 accredited quality control system and integrated into the organization’s overall management activities.

  • + Advantages of Seeking ISO 22000 Certification

    While ISO 22000 can be implemented on its own, it is designed to be completely ISO 9001 compliant. It would be easy for businesses that have already been ISO 9001 certified to extend this certification to include ISO 22000. ISO 22000 contains a table showing the correspondence of its specifications with those of ISO 9001, to enable users to do so.

    ISO 9001 is a standard that can be audited, providing the organization concerned with validation and appreciation. To meet these food safety standards, food service companies can use ISO 9001 and ISO 22000 together or expand their current 9001 scheme. ISO 22000 is organized in line with ISO 9001 ‘s ten clauses. It is worldwide, and can be used for certification and registration by any enterprise within the entire food chain.

  • + Aligned with ISO 9001

    As a certified food supplier, you ensure your clients that your goods, ingredients and equipment comply with negotiated requirements, saving time and money for the sales department. These transactions go more smoothly because your reputation for success through an approved registrar has already been established through your registration. Moreover, you gain:

    • Increased satisfaction with the client
    • Operational changes underway
    • Less failures and lower rates of return
    • Greater efficiency and performance enhancement
    • Simplified and effective reporting
    • Greater performance of audit and surveillance
  • + Learn More

    Additional information on ISO 22000 can be found in the ISO Catalogue in the ISO Store at http://www.iso.org. The standard includes additional documents, such as:

    • ISO/TS 22004, Food safety management systems – Guidance on the application of ISO 22000:2005. This provides important guidance that can assist small and medium-sized food enterprises around the world.
    • ISO/TS 22003, Food safety management systems – Requirements for bodies providing audit and certification of food safety management systems. This will provide rules for auditing a food safety management system and guide registrars that intend to perform ISO 22000 audits. It will be published in the first quarter of 2006.
    • ISO 22005, Traceability in the feed and food chain – General principles and guidance for system design and development. This will be circulated as a Draft International Standard.
    • In partnership with the International Trade Centre (ITC) – the technical cooperation agency of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) and the World Trade Organization (WTO) – ISO is also preparing an easy-to-use check-list for small businesses and developing countries, entitled ISO 22000: Are you ready?
  • + Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points (HACCP)

    Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points (HACCP) is a systematic approach to the detection and control of (i.e. microbiological, chemical or physical) hazards that may pose a danger to healthy food preparation. HACCP encompasses:

    • Recognizing what can go wrong
    • Planning to stop it
    • Make sure that you do so.

    In simple terms, the protection of products and supplies coming into a food company and what is done with them afterwards is regulated.

    Since 1998, providing a food safety management system based on the principles of HACCP has been a legal requirement for all food companies.

    It is possible to fulfil this requirement in a variety of ways that best fit the business. This will vary from the operator of a food business:

    • Creation of a systematic framework of HACCP or
    • Following a recognized sector guide to good practice
    • The proper application of the prerequisite hygiene criteria may be sufficient to monitor all hazards in the case of a company conducting basic food operations (e.g. pre-packaged food services).
  • + Advantages of HACCP

    • Framework for the development, implementation and demonstration of a good Food Safety Management System
    • Consumer loyalty by providing goods that meet consumer criteria reliably, including consistency, protection and legality.
    • Reduced operational costs by minimising the possibility of financial penalties from the recall of goods and thereby ensuring safe distribution of food
    • Legal enforcement guarantees enforcement with constitutional, regulatory and contractual for your company.
    • Operational efficiency – Improves operational efficiencies by taking a proactive approach by detecting risks, establishing and tracking essential control limits, product tradability, product inspection and validation, and managing non-conformities in line with HACCP plans by enhancing the efficacy of your overall food safety management system.
    • Ability to get more business, particularly where procurement specifications require certification as a condition to supply.
  • + Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP)

    GMP or PRP (Prerequisite Program) is for those who are committed to food safety and FSMS standards such as Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) and ISO 22000. GMP is an absolute must as it provides the basis for the production and implementation of effective Food Safety Management Systems (FSMS) as well as food safety assurance.

    Good manufacturing practices (GMP) provide several specific conditions of operation and procedures that the food industry requires to comply with. This includes:

    • The design and layout of the food premises
    • The training given to the staffs
    • Adequate maintenance of the instruments and utensils used within the organisation
    • Usage of necessary chemicals, including cleaning chemicals, pest control chemicals and machine lubricants inside and around the food premises.
    • Recognition and storage of waste inside and by the organisation
    • Implementation and efficacy of the method of tradability
    • Cleanliness of the premises, appliances, utensils, floors, walls and ceilings for food
    • A successful program for pest control
  • + Benefits of Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP)

    • Minimized costs and saved money
    • Proof of healthy and reliable handling of food
    • Compliance with legal requirements and building trust in customers
    • Willingness to exchange globally
    • Food culture inside your business
    • Reducing statements, returns, reprocessing and refusals

The international standard provides the basis for an organization to adopt a globally recognized system to manage the protection of its information.

We have exposed ourselves to increased numbers and types of threats with the increased us of new technologies to store, send and retrieve information. In order for each factor to be efficient, the overall approach to Information Security and the integration of various security initiatives needs to be handled. An ISMS enables you to organize your protection efforts efficiently. The introduction of ISO/IEC 27001:2013 will ensure consumers and suppliers that information security within your company is taken seriously and that established procedures are in place to deal with threats and problems of information security.

Who Needs ISMS?

A wide variety of companies, small, medium and large, can use the ISMS standard in most sectors of the commercial and industrial market, such as technology, finance and insurance, telecommunications, healthcare, utilities, retail and manufacturing sectors, different service industries, transportation, government and many others. ISO/IEC 27001:2013, as its predecessor, defines the procedures for the creation, implementation, analysis and monitoring, management and maintenance of a productive ISMS by a company.

Advantages of ISMS

  • In all its types, including digital, paper-based, intellectual property, business secrets, computer and cloud data, hard copies and personal information, it helps to manage information.
  • It helps the organization protect itself from technology-based risks and other, more prevalent threats, such as poorly informed workers or inadequate procedures.
  • Because of the risk evaluation and analysis strategy, it eliminates costs expended on indiscriminately installing layers of additional technologies that may not function.
  • To reduce the danger of rapidly changing threats, it continually adapts to changes both in the environment and within the organization.
  • It ensures that the protection of information is ingrained in the company, improves the organizational culture and makes procedures successful.
  • It focuses on knowledge integrity and availability as well as confidentiality. If the information is accessible but in a format that is not usable due to system disruption, the integrity of that information has been compromised; if the information is protected but inaccessible to those who need to use it as part of their job, then the availability of that information has been compromised.
  • In order to ensure its timely resumption, it preserves the availability of information and essential business processes from the impact of major disasters.
  • It helps organizations to be considerably more resilient to cyber-attacks.
  • Continuous progress, inspection, internal audits and corrective steps ensure that the controls stay up-to-date and operate properly.
