Indonesia Mandatory National Standard for Toys

Vol. 765 | May 13, 2014

The Toy Industry Association recently met with Indonesia’s Ministry of Industry to discuss key issues related to the implementation of Indonesia’s new National Standard for Toys that calls for additional sampling, testing, labeling and import documentation.

As per Regulation of the Ministry of Industry No. 55/M-IND/PER/11/2013 amending No. 24/M-IND/PER/4/2013, toy companies shall comply with the following requirements effective April 30, 2014:

  • Customs manifests for covered categories received by Indonesian Customs on or after April 30, 2014, will require accompanying Indonesian National Standard (SNI) documentation and must be labeled with the SNI mark (with specifically-assigned SNI number). If compliance is not met, the shipment is subject to re-exportation.

  • The product must be sampled and tested to the new Indonesian National Toy Standard by a laboratory that is registered with the Ministry of Industry and have Memorandum of Understanding with a designated product certification body (“LSPro”).

  • Testing shall be done for every shipment imported into the country.

  • The Ministry of Industry will consider random testing and issuance of certifications for existing inventory
