Indonesia - ITC equipment new requirement for test reports approval


As referred in the January issue of this newsletter, for IT- and communication equipment to be marketed in Indonesia, certificate of approval issued by the Directorate General of Resources and Equipment for Post & Information Technology (SDPPI) is required
The testing must be according to Indonesian national standards, most of which, however, are adopted from the equivalent international standards. Test reports from a number of listed foreign laboratories have been accepted, but the list is being reduced as in-country testing capacity is being increased.  

Early this year, SDPPI issued a Decree No. 11-2021 which shows the latest list of accepted foreign laboratories, (including Nemko laboratories in both Asia, North America and Europe).
There have been many questions about this Decree, especially about the part denoted Dictum 3. This part requires foreign labs to attach a ‘summary of page reference on the Test Report (LHU)’ that is related to the technical
requirements applied in Indonesia, but without any guidance or format on what and how to present this. To clarity this, SDPPI did on 2 June issue an official Announcement (No. 457/DJSDPPI.5/SP.04.09/06/2021) which may be seen e.g. here.
It concerns a cross-reference of the measurement results summary to the relevant Indonesian technical
requirements presented in the format as shown annexed to this announcement (on pages 3-14) and shall be in effect from 4 July this year.
