Provisions for Exporters and Importers with Good Reputation

The Minister of Trade issued Regulation of Minister of Trade No. 17/2021 (‘Permendag-17’) on 1 April 2021 stipulating criteria for Exporters and Importers with Good Reputation.

The authorities incentivize Reputable Exporters and Importers that have a high level of compliance by approving applications for restricted exports and imports as well as removing surveyor report requirements for commodities for which these are mandatory.

This facility is granted for producer/importers of 77 types of goods and commodities, including corn, fresh livestock products, and import of not-new capital goods for remanufacturing. Meanwhile, for export it is granted for nine types of commodity goods, including black glutinous rice, organic, medium and premium rice, non-subsidized urea fertilizer, and scrap metal.

Exporters and Importers meeting certain requirements can submit online application for Exporters and Importers with Good Reputation through the integrated system of the Indonesian National Single Window (INSW) which is harmonized with the online trade system of the Ministry of Trade (Inatrade).

An Exporter with Good Reputation must meet all the criteria including complying with realisation reports for all Export Approvals in the preceding 1 (one) year and never having been subjected to administrative penalties of written warning. An Importer with Good Reputation must meet all the criteria, including that the Importer is a Producer Importer and complying with the realization reports on all Import Approvals within the preceding 1 (one) year and never having been subjected to administrative penalties of license revocation for violation of regulations in the field of Import within the preceding 2 (two) years.

Exporters and Importers that have obtained acknowledgement as Authorized Economic Operators or Principal Customs Partners (‘MITA’) from the Director General of Custom and Excise or have been granted the Primaniyarta Award from the Minister of Trade starting from Year 2018 will be granted status as Exporters and Importers with Good Reputation by the Minister of Trade.
