Health Supplement Registration Services in Indonesia: BPOM Certification
Health supplements are regulated by the National Agency of Food and Drug Control, known as Badan Pengawas Obat dan Makanan (BPOM). According to the regulations, only Indonesian legal entities registered as food, traditional drug, and pharmaceutical companies can import and distribute dietary supplements to the country. Before entering the local market, health supplement products need to undergo a certification process conducted by Indonesia’s BPOM. First, the body will conduct a facility building inspection to ensure your products comply with all safety and standard distribution requirements.
