Effective August 2018, with the application of the new Communication and Informatics Ministry Regulation Number 7 year of 2018 (PM Kominfo No 7 Tahun 2018) regarding Electronically Integrated Business Licensing, there are several changes on certification procedure.

  1. Applicant must be an Indonesia LOCAL company registered with SDPPI and with NIB (Nomor Induk Berusaha/Indonesia Company Business Number).

  2. All application processes are to be moved to an Online Single Submission (OSS) system of theRepublic of Indonesia. This system can be accessed by inputting applicant’s NIB number (Business License Number) and password.

  3. Certificate validity remains 3 years, there will be no renewal process. If after 3 years of certificate issuance, the product is still manufactured, assembled, imported, or traded in the territory of the Republic of Indonesia, the applicant will need to re-certify the product. This re-certification process will be counted as a new application, so the certificate number issued after the re-certification process will be different than the first certificate number issued

  4. Certification process has changed:

  5. Previous: “Submit application documents and get testing reference letter from SDPPI Headquarters >> Pretest and official test in an SDPPI lab >> Evaluating test results and issuing certificate from SDPPI Headquarters >> Certificate issuance.

  6. New certification process: “Testing in an SDPPI-accredited test Lab (Could be in-country SDPPI-accredited test lab or foreign SDPPI-accredited test Lab) to get the test report >> Submit test report and application documents to SDPPI headquarters for evaluation >> Certificate issuance.
