Indonesia: Kominfo introduces draft regulation on electronic systems

OneTrust DataGuidance confirmed, on 24 March 2020, with Budhy Apriastuti Evita, Associate at Makarim & Taira S., that "The draft of the Ministry of Communication and Informatics ('Kominfo') regulation of the Management of Privately Managed Electronic System Organiser ('ESO') ('the Draft Regulation') had been submitted on 10 March 2020."

In particular, Apriastuti Evita noted that, "The draft regulation will be the implementing Government Regulation No. 71 of 2019 on the Implementation of Electronic Systems and Transactions, which provides various provisions from the registration of privately managed ESOs, including foreign ESOs, the obligation and liabilities of privately managed ESOs, and the management of filter-content mechanism until the sanctions that can be taken by the Government." In addition, Apriastuti Evita added that, "It is not clear yet when this regulation will be enacted and whether there will be any change to the final draft. We were informed that the aim is to get the draft approved by the end of March but, in light of the current COVID-19 issue in Indonesia, it seems that the review of this draft regulation may take longer."
