Import ban

 On 29 December 2015, the Indonesian Ministry of Trade issued regulation 127/M-DAG/PER/12/2015 changing the regulations on importing used capital goods. The regulation replaces a 2013 regulation (cf. Related state acts).

Health Appliance Providers no longer allowed to import used capital goods
With the new provisions in place, health appliance providers will no longer be allowed to import used capital goods. This reverses an intervention introduced in 2010 (see related state acts).

Changed General Age Limitations
Previously, only certain goods listed under the HS codes 84, 85 and 89 were required to be no older than 20 years. Now, however, most products will be faced with age limitations ranging from 15 to 30 years. Despite these harsher restrictions, the maximum age limitation for vessels (HS code 89) was increased from 20 to 30 years.
The precise provisions were specified in regulation 14/M-IND/PER/2/2016 from the Industry Ministry (cf. Sources).

The regulation shall come into force on 1 February 2016.
