Import ban

The regulation 52/M-DAG/PER/8/2017 by the Indonesian Ministry of Trade amends its previous regulation 125/M-DAG/PER/12/2015 regarding import restrictions on salt.

While the importation is still starkly limited, article 11(1) now allows for the Ministry (in cases of supply shortages) to import salt also by private companies. Previously, this was limited to state-owned companies.

Furthermore, article 10 of the 2015 regulation prohibited the sale of imported salt to another company within Indonesia. The amended article 10 allows now exceptions for the food and beverage industry, as well as other industries after the salt has been processed (art. 10(2) a and b of the 2017 regulation).

The amendment came into force on 3 August 2017.
