Based on the risk assessment conducted by the Indonesian National Nuclear Competent Authority and related ministries/institutions, Indonesia is proposing the amendment of "The Regulation of Minister of Agriculture (MoA) on Food Safety Control for Radioactive Contamination on Fresh Food of Animal and/or Plant Origin from Japan" (Regulation of MoA Number 20/Permentan/OT.140/3/2011 in connection with the Regulation of MoA Number 66/Permentan/OT.140/5/2014).
The amendment will only be applied to fresh agri-food (including animal and plant products) exported from Japan to Indonesia. The requirement to conduct radioactivity testing and provide Certificate of Non-Radioactivity will be limited only to fresh food produced in seven prefectures as follows: Ibaraki, Miyagi, Nagano, Niigata, Tochigi, Yamanashi, and Yamagata. For traceability purpose, the name of prefecture of origin shall be declared on the Country/Region of Origin column in Health Certificate/HC or the Place of Origin column in Phytosanitary Certificate/PC from Japan. Testing requirement for Iodine-131 (I‑131) will be revoked. The type of regulated commodities and the maximum limits for Cesium-137 (Ce-137) remain unchanged. The purpose of this communication is to publicly announce the Ministry's decision in this regard and to provide the appropriate contact information for any inquiries.
