Indonesia is one of the leading markets for cosmetic products in the Asian continent. The Indonesian Agency for Drug and Food control, under Indonesian Ministry of Health (otherwise called Badan Pengawas Obat dan Makanan (BPOM)), is responsible for the cosmetic registration process in Indonesia. Cosmetic products in Indonesia can be registered only if they are enlisted as legal entities as per the Indonesian law and are regulated by the BPOM. Additionally, it is mandatory to have an Import License in order to enrol the products through the Indonesian customs. For foreign companies, local agents are required to obtain a license. Companies must ensure to obtain unique notification for each product placed in the Indonesian market.
Although the notification process is carried out online, uploading detailed information of the products can, sometimes, become a daunting task for organizations. Upon successful registrations of the product, the BPOM provides a unique notification number to the companies within 14 days after payment validation. Additionally, adhering to halal restrictions and other culturally oriented regulations becomes a challenge.
To ease out the registration and market-entry procedures for foreign manufacturers, Freyr supports organizations with developing strategic and well-defined process approach.
