When it comes to importing goods into Indonesia, there are required documents that should be provided, particularly raw materials of food & beverages, into Indonesia.
One of the required documents is the Import Notification Letter, known as Surat Keterangan Impor (SKI). The Import Notification Letter (SKI) for raw material of food & beverages is issued by the National Agency of Food and Drug Control, known as Badan Pengawas Obat dan Makanan (BPOM).
Process of Getting SKI
The Import Notification Letter (SKI) is issued in an electronic form and applications are to be completed online through e-BPOM or the Indonesia National Single Window (INSW) portal.
The Import Notification Letter (SKI) can be printed by the applicant or other interested agencies through the INSW system.
The Import Notification Letter (SKI) for raw material of food & beverages is valid for one import shipment.
