New product labelling rules in IndonesiaPublished on 10 Jan 2019 | 1 min read
New product labelling rules in the F&B, personal care and pharma sector aim to improve consumer safety. Indonesia’s FDA (a.k.a. BPOM) issued its Regulation 22 in late 2018 to require BPOM issued bar codes to be used. All foods and drugs health supplements, cosmetics and processed foods must now have a bar code, issued by BPOM and put it on the label. This will apply to locally produced and imported goods. Track and trace technology will enable verification and digital reporting will support this.
