Import licensing requirement

On 2 September 2009, the Indonesian Ministry of Trade announced regulation 39/M-DAG/PER/9/2009 introducing import restrictions on non-hazardous and non-toxic waste.
Before being allowed to import the products, importers will need to obtain a 1-year import license ("IP Limbah Non B3"). During this process, they need to provide recommendations from one of two Directorate Generals at the Ministry of Industry as well as a recommendation from the Deputy Director for hazardous and toxic waste and raw materials at the Ministry of Environment.
The regulation came into force on the day of its announcement, i.e. on 2 September 2009.
The list of affected trading partners is based on the first appendix which contains all waste products allowed for imports. The banned products were not included in this measure since their import ban may constitute a legitimate health and environmental protection motive.
 
Update
On 9 May 2016, the Trade Ministry issued regulation 31/M-DAG/PER/5/2016 amending the licensing regime for imports of non-hazardous and non-toxic waste. The regulation scraps the IP Limbah Non B3-license. Instead, the universal producer's import license ("API-P") will suffice.
The new provisions came into force 90 days after their announcement, i.e. on 7 August 2016. Hence, this measure is no longer classified as implemented.
