Household Product Registration in Indonesia

According to Indonesian law, "household items" include equipment, materials, or mixtures of materials intended for maintenance and treatment of human health, pets and houses.

The Ministry of Health is the main controlling body of imported household products (HPP) in Indonesia. Like medical devices, household products are divided into several categories based on the risk they pose, and the requirements for registration of products in different classes vary.

Regulated Household Products in Indonesia

Household Products covered by the Republic of Indonesia’s Regulation of the Minister of Commerce No. 18 of 2019 on testing methods, registration procedures, monitoring, suspension of trading activities and recall of goods related to safety, security, health and are broadly divided into electrical and electronic products and products containing chemical substances.

The electrical and electronic products are subject to safety requirements, while the chemical substance-containing products should be compliant with maximum permissible values for heavy metals, formaldehyde, azo dyes, PFOS and PFOA.

Registration of Household Products in Indonesia

Household Products need to be registered before they are distributed in the Indonesian domestic market. The registration procedures are undertaken through the licensing service system by the General Directorate of Consumer Protection and Commercial Transactions under the Ministry of Commerce, and the following documents must be prepared:

  1. Manufacturing business license for manufacturers or trading business license for importers.
  2. Declaration of self-conformity with laboratory test results in writing for the targeted products. It must include the brand name, model number, and type of the products and be issued up to six months prior to the date of application submission.
  3. List of the names and addresses of distributors, agents, wholesalers, and/ or retailers.


If there is no deficiency with the application, the Ministry of Commerce will issue a “K3L Products Registration” within three business days after application.

The registration issued will contain a “K3L Products Registration Number,” which must be written on the packaging or label of the goods. In addition, the manufacturer (or importer) must re-register every five years after the issuance of the K3L Products Registration in order to update the data.

Furthermore, the products that obtain the K3L Goods Registration will be disclosed through the official website of the Ministry of Commerce or other media outlets.
