Obligation to Use Standards
The application of SNI standards is voluntary, so the activities and products which do not observe them are not prohibited. For the protection of common interest, the security of the country, national economic development and the preservation of the environment, some standards may be made compulsory (SNI wajib).
Classification of Standards
"SNI" is the national certification mark.
Assessment of the System of Standardization
The rapid growth of international trade has led to the development of standards, observed in order to remain competitive and used as non-tariff barriers against competition. Standardization activities only began in 1991, following the government's adoption of regulations concerning the wording, the setting up and the control of the Indonesian National Standard (SNI). The use of standards is very widespread today.
