SNI Mark Product Certification
The Ministry of Industry and Trade through the Secretary General gazetted the procedure of SNI Mark product certification on June 1996 to ensure that the product meet the specified Indonesia National Standards (SNI) requirements.
There are two types of SNI i.e : Voluntary and Mandatory
For the mandatory products, the producer/manufacturer has to fulfil two requirements i.e:
1. Product has to comply with the standard (SNI)
2. Mnufacturer has to implement one of the following modules which is based on Quality Management System i.e:
* Module I, BSN 10 Guidelines (16 elemenst/clause of ISO 9001)
* Module II, ISO 9003
* Module III, ISO 9002
* Module IV, ISO 9001
* Module V, QMS which is equal to ISO 9001
Producers/manufacturers who wish to seek SNI mark certification have to send an application to Centre for Standardization and Accreditation (PSA) Ministry of Industry and Trade. Then PSA proceeds for evaluation of the application and verification to the manufacturers premises. PSA issued SNI certificate if they comply with the requirements.
This regime is only applied for domestic electrical and electronic products since Indonesia does not have technical regulation for imported electrical and electronic products.
Clause 19 article (2) in Government Regulation No. 102/2000 of National Standardization stipulates import mandatory products must fulfil SNI.
