Requirements for Exemption of SIPPT and/or IPPT

Despite obtaining the exemption, the execution of construction still requires the building construction permit (“IMB”), certificate of feasible function and other regional licensing set out under the law. In submitting the application of licensing, each industrial company is required to obtain the recommendation letter from industrial area company.

Besides fulfilling the license, for the land area condemned with the public infrastructure, facility, and utility then it has to be realized. In additions, this realization is a prerequisite of IMB.

For the issued SIPPT and/or IPPT of industrial area before this Governor Regulation takes place shall proceed with their licensing process. On the other hand, the issued SIPPT and/or IPPT that does not oblige to fulfill any obligation, but already completed the licensing process, will be revoked.
