REGULATION ON MEDICAL EQUIPMENT AND HOUSEHOLD MEDICAL SUPPLIES
SNI Certification for Medical Equipment will be Mandatory at 2013.
The Minister of Health on 23 August 2010 issued Regulation No. 1189/MENKES/PER/VIII/2010 regarding Production of
Medical Equipment and Household Medical Supplies (the “Regulation”). The Regulation was issued with a view to
adjusting the previous regulation in light of technological development and the need to protect the public from
hazardous misuse and abuse of medical equipment and household medical supplies, and to prevent the use of medical
equipment and supplies that do not meet quality and safety standards.
The provisions of the Regulation among others regulate the production method, product certification, quality
maintenance, export procedures, product withdrawal and disposal, and production monitoring and supervision.
Medical equipment and household medical supplies may only be produced by certified companies, and they must meet
the quality, safety and utilization standards of Farmakope Indonesia, the Indonesian National Standard (SNI), or
other standards that are approved by the Minister of Health. Medical equipment and household medical supplies that
are produced by small scale industries are regulated separately from this Regulation.
Companies that produce, re-package, manufacture, and re-manufacture medical equipment and/or household medical
supplies must submit a production report to the Director General of the Ministry of Health at least once a year in
the format provided in the attachment of the Regulation, and send a copy of the report to the Head of the Local
Provincial Health Agency and to the Head of the Regency/City Health Agency.
The Regulation revokes the previous Minister of Health’s Regulation No. 1184/MenKes/Per/X/2004 on the same
subject matter, and became effective on the day of its issue. (by: Hamu)
