The Directorate General of Resources and Equipment for Post and Information Technology (SDPPI) has published a new regulation in order to extend the recognition of foreign laboratories for testing of some type of equipment. There had been several changes in the regulations over the last year where the agency had stated only incountry testing of products would be allowed. They then changed that back to accepting foreign test reports as long as those labs were on their Accredited lab list.
The Indonesia regulatory agency Direktorat Jenderal Sumber Dava dan Perangkat Pos dan Informatika (SDPPI) recently published a new SRD standard. The end result is that several technologies that were previously listed in separate standards have been consolidated into this one, new standard/category.
The Direktorat Jenderal Sumber Daya dan Perangkat Pos dan Informatika (SDPPI) issued a new regulation concerning foreign testing laboratories acceptance for SDPPI certification process. This acceptance will be valid just for a short period, and not for all type of equipment. Previously SDPPI has only allowed test reports issued from a few labs based in Indonesia. This was creating issues because when many products were originally approved it was based on accredited foreign test labs so when these products were due for renewal, all new testing was required in Indonesia.
Contact CSIA to find out if your products require in country testing or for more information on this rule change.
The regulatory agency in Indonesia—Direktorat Jenderal Sumber Daya dan Perangkat Pos dan Informatika (SDPPI)—issued a new Regulations #7, which came into force August of 2018.
The new regulations introduce several major changes especially in the certification process.
1. The certificate holder must be a local Indonesian company.
According to the section №59 of the Regulation, an applicant can be a local manufacturer, a local distributor, a local importer or a company local representative that’s officially registered in Indonesia.
a. A brand owner that is legally registered in Indonesia
b. An Indonesian business entity that’s assigned as an authorized representative or a distributor by a foreign brand owner
c. An Indonesian legal entity that manufactures telecommunication equipment for brand owners that reside outside the territory of the Republic of Indonesia
d. Individuals or business entities that produce, assemble, and integrate components of telecommunication equipment, so that they can function as telecommunication tools and/or equipment.
2. A certificate holder must have an NIB (Business Registration Number)
Previously, an application for the telecommunication equipment certification can be submitted through the SDPPI website by logging in with applicant’s user account. Now, all licensing services including the telecommunication equipment certification are to be done through the Online Single Submission (OSS) System of the Republic of Indonesia. This system is available for local companies only. The access is provided through applicant’s NIB number (Business License Number) and a password. CSIA can provide local certificate holder service should you not have one available.
3. Technically the regulations state there are no timelines for certificate validity.
However, if the product is still produced, assembled or imported to Indonesia after 3 years, re-certification is still required according to the section №70 of the Regulation #7.
4. Certification Scheme
The new scheme comprises the following steps:
