WASHINGTON (June 13)—The Malaysian government has opened a Washington office for the Malaysian Rubber Export Promotion Council to spread the word on the low-protein, high-quality Standard Malaysian Glove and try to head off anti-latex legislation. Regarding anti-latex government action in Arizona and Rhode Island, the only thing the MREPC can do is "to give them the right information," said Lim Keng Yaik, Malaysian minister of primary industries. "They can't make a choice without the right information." Developed in consultation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the SMG program represents "a quality assurance and product guarantee in respect of the '4 P's'—protein, powder, pinholes and physical properties," Lim said.
