The Ministry of Women, Family and Community Development has not authorised any party to use the 1AZAM logo.

“This includes for the reprinting of leaflets and books, on social networking sites, or for financial management and entrepreneur courses,” the ministry said in a statement here Friday.

The ministry owns the copyright of the 1AZAM brand and any provider of such courses would be appointed directly by them, it said.

“The 1AZAM financial management and entrepreneur course providers are only for selected partners who fit our eligibility criteria and not open to all Malaysians,” the statement said.

It added that the ministry would not be responsible for the contents of programmes offered by unauthorised providers.

Further information on the programme may be obtained at the 1Malaysian One Call Centre at 03-8000 8000.
