Indonesia Extends Exporter Registration Deadline

The Indonesian government has postponed the implementation of its new exporter registration requirement to Jan. 1.

The country is addressing registration complications for both exporters and importers, ISRI’s government relations department says.

The new regulations require exporters to register by providing several documents, including an application form and a certificate of good standing, to an Indonesian Embassy or consulate. ISRI asked the Indonesian government to delay its original Sept. 30 implementation date to give exporters and customers time to obtain the proper documents, Adina Renee Adler, ISRI’s vice president of advocacy, says.

 Exporters with a pending inspection that was canceled because they missed the Sep. 30 deadline can book a new inspection, said Cotecna Inspection, an inspection company that serves the Indonesian market, in an update to exporters. The inspection process may take longer than the standard three business days, it added.

Unregistered suppliers that ship material prior to Jan. 1 must ensure it arrives in Indonesia on or before Feb. 28, Cotecna said. Shipments arriving after that date will be subject to the new registration requirements. Contact Adina Renee Adler at
