Indonesia – New Update of National Standard for Baby Clothing
The Decree of Indonesia Minister of Industry No. 07/M-IND/PER/2/2014 effective since 17 May 2014, on the implementation of National Standards of Indonesia (SNI) requires mandatory testing of baby clothes, This decree which has been in effect since 17 May 2014 states that the appointment of foreign laboratories listed in the Decree of Indonesia Minister of Industry No. 33/M-IND/PER/5/2014 is valid only for 2 years.
Therefore effective 18 May 2016 foreign laboratories will no longer be allowed to conduct SNI testing, all certification testing must be done in approved local laboratories.
All baby clothing imported or produced, distributed and marketed in Indonesia must be labelled with SNI certification mark (Certificate of SNI Labeled Products, SPPT SNI). The SNI certification mark must be issued by a Product Certification Body (LSPro) that has been accredited by the National Accreditation Body of Indonesia (KAN) and appointed by Minister of Industry. The certificate must show that the product conforms to the SNI 7617:2013 requirements and the SNI label should be put on each product in an easily accessible area.
Our PT. SGS INDONESIA has been designated by the Indonesian Minister of Industry through Decree No. 94/M-IND/PER/11/2015 as one of the Product Certification Bodies (LSPro) and Testing Laboratories to perform SNI’s Product Certification Testing for baby clothing in accordance with SNI requirements.
