Export ban

On 12 January 2014, Indonesia introduced an export ban on raw ore. The Indonesian Government had already initiated a de facto export ban on 6 May 2012 (see related measure). The new law replaces this initial ban.
 
The Government Regulation 1 of 2014 waters down the initial export ban by introducing a distinction of 'Category 1 minerals' and 'Category 2 minerals'. Overall, the new version of the ban is less restrictive than its predecessor scheme.
 
Category 1 minerals can still be exported in 'concentrated form' although a certain level of processing and refining has to be performed within the country.
List of Category 1 minerals and the processing requirement (2012 vs. 2014):

  • Copper: 99% vs. 15%
  • Iron Ore: 80/88% vs.62%
  • Manganese:60/98/99% vs. 49%
  • Lead: 99.85% vs. 57%
  • Zinc: 90% vs. 52%
  • Ilmenite: 98% vs. 56%
  • Titanium: 94% vs. 58%/56%

Apparently, all processing requirements have been lowered in the 2014 scheme.
 
Category 2 minerals can only be exported when the processing and refining requierements from 2012 are fulfilled. TheCategory 2 minerals are:nickel, bauxite, tin, gold, silver and chromium.
 
A detailed list of all minerals and their respecitveconcentration criteria is provided in Regulation 7/2012.
