Import quota

 On 29 March 2010, the Indonesian Ministry of Trade issued regulation 16/M-DAG/PER/3/2010 introducing the first specific quotas on alcoholic beverages after a related regulation came into force earlier in the year (see below).
The quota subject to the duty was set to 390'000 cartons or 3.537 million litres of alcoholic beverages (art. 3).
The regulation came into force on 1 April 2010 and was implemented until 31 March 2011. It was then replaced by regulation 06/M-DAG/PER/3/2011 (cf. Related Measures).
 
The quota system is based on regulation 43/M-DAG/PER/9/2009, which came into force on 1 January 2010 and requires the Ministry of Trade to set amounts of sales of alcoholic beverages subject to import duties (cf. Sources). Whenever the given quota is reached, only a designated state-owned enterprise can conduct further imports (which are not subject to import duties).
 
On the same day, the Indonesian Finance Ministry replaced the luxury tax on alcohols with a discriminatory excise tax (cf. Related Measures).
According to UN Comtrade, Indonesia did not have any bilateral trade in alcoholic beverages worth over 1 million US dollars in the year prior to the implementation of the regulation, i.e. in 2009. Hence, no affected trading partner has been listed.
