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:
Contact CSIA for more details on these new regulations.
Starting August 13th, 2018 a local certificate holder and local representative is required. The certificate will no longer be issued in the name of a foreign manufacturer. While the certificate will technically be valid indefinitely, every three years a re-submission or review of the certificate will be required.
Contact CSIA for more information on these changes.
As regulations change from time to time in many countries you should contact CSIA for up to date information.
CSIA can also provide supporting services should your company not be able to meet country specific requirements such as a local representative, local certificate holder, translating documents into the native language, etc. Contact CSIA for all your FCC certification, CE certification, Industry Canada and International Approval needs.
