Indonesia – New Type Approval Regulations
The Indonesian radio and telecommunication regulatory authority (SDPPI) published 2 new regulations pertaining to type approval—PM Kominfo Nomor 7 Tahun 2018 and PM Kominfo Nomor 16 Tahun 2018. The most significant changes include new requirements for the applicant (local representative) and updated labelling requirements.
Applicant / Local
Representative for foreign manufacturers, the applicant must now be the real importer or actual distributor legally registered in Indonesia. The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the manufacturer and the distributor has to be submitted along with the other required application documents.
The existing label must now be accompanied with the QR code which can be found on every certificate. For products other than short range devices, a warning sign must also be affixed to the device. The certificate holder has to provide a photo of the actual label on the device to the authority within 30 working days after the type certificate has been issued
