In May we have informed our clients about the new Circular “On application for certification procedure of telecommunication devices in the COVID-19 period” that was issued by the SPPI of Indonesia. It allowed to apply for the new certificate or for the recertification procedure without a full set of test reports providing. The SPPI allowed manufacturers to provide a part (e.g. EMC or RF test results) of test results with a sign and stamp statement in which the applicant must declare that he would be able to provide the complete reports no later than 6 (six) months from the Circular Letter Acting. This Circulation was intended to be valid until the determination of the expiry of the Status of Specific Emergency Disasters from COVID-19 by Indonesian authorized Government Agency.
In the middle of June, the Minister of Communication and Information Technology issued Circular No 503/DJSDPPI/SP.04.09/06/2020 that terminates the Circular “On application for certification procedure of telecommunication devices in the COVID-19 period”. These actions were made due to reopening of the accredited Indonesian laboratory that deals with telecommunication equipment.
So, the Circular “On application for certification procedure of telecommunication devices in the COVID-19 period” is invalid from June 17, 2020 and the applicant should again apply for certification and recertification procedure in the standard way.
