Importance of the Indonesian Market

The Indonesian market holds significant importance for GC’s plastic resin segment, given its large and growing demand, strategic location, and favorable economic policies. "The potential implementation of mandatory SNI certification offers substantial benefits, including enhanced market access, regulatory compliance, customer trust, operational efficiencies, and increased competitiveness," Mr. Saroj added.

Consumer demand for such certified products drives manufacturers to maintain rigorous quality standards and prioritize sustainable practices," said Mr. Thaiyapat Jittiborripat, President Director GCM Indonesia.



Ensuring Compliance with SNI Standards

Manufacturers can ensure compliance with SNI standards by regularly testing their products in accredited laboratories, following production best practices, and undergoing certification processes by recognized certification bodies.

Future of SNI Certification

With the potential for mandatory SNI certification on the horizon, the benefits for Indonesian industries are significant. "Although initial adjustments and investments may be required for compliance, the long-term advantages of enhanced market access, consumer trust, and operational efficiencies are well worth the effort," explained Drs. Kukuh S. Achmad, M.Sc..
