WTO: Indonesia - halal product assurance Law no. 33 of 2014


Mar 30, 2020

Statement by the United States to the committee on technical barriers to trade

1.     The United States recognizes the importance for Indonesian consumers to know whether products are halal. We want to work with you to ensure that the law achieves your objective without creating any unnecessary barriers to trade.

2.     We thank Indonesia for its response to the U.S. Government and U.S. industry comments on the Ministry of Religious Affairs (MORA) Regulation on Implementation of Halal Product Assurance, whichit notified to this Committee in G/TBT/N/IDN/123.

3.     We understand, however, that Indonesia finalized and issued another implementing regulation of the Halal Law in early May, Government Regulation 31 of 2019 on "Implementation Provisions of Law 33/2014 regarding Halal Product Assurance," which Indonesia has not notified to this Committee. We again ask that Indonesia notify this measure, and any additional implementing measures, to the Committee.
