Import-related non-tariff measure, nes
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 2011 regulation (cf. Related Measures).
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.
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 yers. 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).
New Import Approval Requirements
The new regulation scraps the requirement of providing inter alia a Taxpayer Identification Number and replaces it with other documents, e.g. an import plan or detailed information about the imported goods. Also, approved importers will have to submit quarterly instead of monthly realisation reports.
Shortened Import Approval validity
The validity of the import approval for used capital goods was reduced from 12 months to 60 days with the possibility of one prolongation.
The regulation shall come into force on 1 February 2016 and last until 31 December 2018.
The list of affected trading partners is based on 2014 trade volumes.
