ANNOUNCED AS TEMPORARYNo
Import-related non-tariff measure, nes
From 1 September 2010, a wide range of goods falling under a total of 290 HS Codes (6-digit level) that are imported to be sold within Indonesia must be labelled in the Indonesian language Bahasa. With regulation 22/M-DAG/PER/5/2010, the Indonesian Ministry of Trade demands that description, ingredients, as well as side effect, are given in the local language. Goods subject to the new regulation are enumerated in the appendices of the document.
Exempted from this mandate are goods sold in bulk and packaged directly in front of the consumer. Also, intermediate goods to be further manufactured in Indonesia as well as raw materials do not have to be labelled.
In order to receive import clearance, importers must submit a sample of the Indonesian label to the Ministry of Trade. The decision shall be announced within 5 days of this submission. A specific product once certified for import need not be certified again until its composition changes.
This regulation was revoked by regulation 73/M-DAG/PER/9/2015 on 1 October 2015 (cf. Related state acts) and is thus no longer classified as implemented.
