Indonesia issued a new Halal certification law, under Government Regulation 39 of 2021 (GR 39/2021) that will impact businesses in most industries. GR 39/2021 states that products that enter, circulate, and are traded in Indonesia must be Halal certified unless they are originating from materials prohibited under Islam (Haram).
GR 39/2021 is one of a number of implementing regulations of the Omnibus Law introduced in November 2020. The Omnibus Law amends some 76 laws with the aim to reform Indonesia’s business climate, boost foreign investments, and create jobs.
