National Standards (SNI)


If an item is declared to meet the technical standard/requirement of an Indonesian National Standard (Standar Nasional Indonesia or SNI), it will be granted an SNI certificate and an SNI label will be placed on the product.

The implementation of SNI is not mandatory, except for products related to the safety, security, society health or environment protection purposes, and/or economic considerations, where the technical institution can impose a part or whole technical specification required by SNI. When a product is required to comply with SNI, any company with the specified product cannot produce or market the product without SNI compliance. If a company has already been declared to meet SNI requirements for a given product, it must continue to produce and market the product in conformity with SNI.
