Regulatory Summary  

Indonesia has set up a national policy for environmental development in its territory through the Environmental Protection and Management Law (Law No. 23, 1997) and its updated version (Law No. 32, 2009). These laws regulate and manage the importation of hazardous and toxic substances. However, Indonesia has not yet adopted an integrated chemical management framework.  

Ministry of Environment and Forestry (MOE) has the main authority to operate the current management system guided by the Government Regulation No 74, 2001 on Hazardous Substances Management and No. 36, 2017 on Procedure about Registration and Notification of Hazardous and Toxic Substances
