The Pingat Kepujian (Commendation Medal) was instituted in 1996. The medal may be awarded to any of the following persons who has distinguished himself through commendable performance and conduct, or significant efficiency, competence and devotion to duty:

  • any person who is or has been a public officer.
  • any person who is or has been an officer employed by any statutory authority (other than a Town Council).
  • any person who is or has been in the service of any organisation, association or body rendering services in the field of education.
  • any person who is or has been employed in any company which is wholly owned by the Government and which is carrying on business mainly as an agent or instrumentality of the Government.

The Pingat Penghargaan (Tentera) is the military equivalent award.
