Import ban

On 24 March 2015, the Indonesian Ministry of Trade published regulation 20/M-DAG/3/2016 on the importation of corn. Compared to previous provisions (see related state acts), the regulation does allow imports of corn but only within prescribed months and as long as the domestic demand is not fulfilled by local production.

Furthermore, article 4 of the regulation stipulates that the imports of corn for fodder may only be conducted by the national procurement agency Bulog. However, importers holding general import licenses API-U or API-P may import corn for food or raw material purposes. A July 2016 amendment to the regulation expanded BULOG's power to also import corn for food purposes (art. 4(3) of the regulation 56/M-DAG/PER/7/2016).

The regulation came into force on 24 March 2016.
