Indonesia updates

February 2024

The Direktorat Jenderal Sumber Daya dan Perangkat Pos dan Informatika (SDPPI) of Indonesia released Decision No. 109 of 2024 on March 27, 2024.  This updated the list of labs accredited for HKT and Non-HKT products.

This regulation will be in force from April 1, 2024 to December 31, 2024, and revokes Regulation No. 11 of 2021.

January 2024

SDPPI has started to mandate full EMC testing parameters on January 1st 2024.

Full EMC test parameters are:

Radiated Emission 30 – 1000 MHz 
Radiated Emission 1 – 6 GHz
Conducted Emission at Main port, and
Conducted Emission at Telecommunication Port

SDPPI had stated they planned to apply Full EMC test Parameters for local test in 2023. However the release of a statement by SDPPI regarding those full test parameters never happened.

We have now confirmed that there is no official publication from SDPPI regarding this matter. The reason is because the provisions of those EMC test parameters already exist in many recen technical regulations, only not fully applied. So when the application comes into force, the legal basis is already exist and no need additional publication.

October 2023

The Direktorat Jenderal Sumber Daya dan Perangkat Pos dan Informatika (SDPPI) has requested stakeholders to provide proposals on plans for implementing mandatory Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) testing of telecommunications equipment.

May 2022

The Direktorat Jenderal Sumber Daya dan Perangkat Pos dan Informatika (SDPPI) advises that local testing is now available for 77 GHz vehicle radar, based on the regulation PERDIRJEN SDPPI No. 3 Year 2020.

June 2021

The Direktorat Jenderal Sumber Daya dan Perangkat Pos dan Informatika (SDPPI) of Indonesia issued Announcement Number 457/DJSDPPI.5/SP.04.09/06/2021 that introduces a new requirement when leveraging foreign test reports for the local type approval process. The test lab must send an additional “Reference Page” as an appendix that addresses the applicable local technical requirements. The requirement will take effect July 4, 2021.

May 2021

Indonesia (SDPPI) recently announced that companies and consumers can expect the rollout of 5G starting in 2022.

Trials of the 5G technology have been ongoing since 2017.

The use of 5G technology will make possible new applications with higher specifications and better services than 4G cellular networks can support That should open up new business opportunities for cellular operators, platform providers and others.

October 2019

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 in-country 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.

August 2019

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.

July 2019

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.

October 2018

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:

  • Testing in an SDPPI-accredited test lab (could be an in-country SDPPI-accredited test lab or a foreign SDPPI-accredited test Lab) to get a test report. In most cases CSIA no longer is requesting     samples from our clients for testing in Indonesia but instead we have been able to obtain approval via paperwork only using manufactures test reports.
  • Submitting the test report and application documents to the SDPPI headquarter for evaluation
  • Certificate issuance

Contact CSIA for more details on these new regulations.

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.
