In response to an Indonesian Trade Security Committee (Komite Pengamanan Perdagangan Indonesia) report that shows that local manufacturers are threatened by the increased import of apparel and its accessories, the Ministry of Finance has imposed a safeguard duty on imports of those products. Minister of Finance Regulation Number 142 of 2021 on the Imposition of Safeguard Duty on the Import of Apparel and Its Accessories (“MOF Regulation 142“) became effective on 12 November 2021.
Article 1 number 3 of Government Regulation No. 34 of 2011 on Anti-dumping, Reciprocal and Safeguard Measures (GR 34) describes safeguard measures as actions taken by the Indonesian government to make local manufacturers more competitive by imposing a safeguard import duty on imported goods that are similar to the goods of local manufacturers. Article 1 number 1 of GR 34 defines anti-dumping measures as actions taken by the Indonesian government to impose anti-dumping import duty on dumped goods. Those two different duties serve a similar purpose for the government, which is to protect local industries.
