In accordance with the Indonesian Ministry of Industry’s directive no. 72/M-IND/PER/7/2012, the Indonesian government began to enforce a mandatory Indonesian National Standard SNI 7617-2010 related to azo dyes and formaldehyde content in fabrics for baby and children’s clothing effective February 06, 2013.

In order to ensure effective implementation of this directive, the importer or manufacturer is required to certify their fabrics for baby and children’s clothing via one of the testing laboratories assigned by LSPro (Lembaga Sertifikasi Produk - Product Certification Agent) and/or a technical institution equivalent to LSPro appointed by the Indonesian Ministry of Industry.

Under this supervisory framework, a conformity assessment body is responsible for:

- Testing the azo dyes and formaldehyde content in fabrics for baby and children’s clothing according to SNI 7617-2010 and to certify compliant products.

- Issuing of SPPT-SNI (Sertifikat Produk Penggunaan Tanda SNI: product certificate bearing SNI logo) to compliant product. SNI 7617-2010: Textile - Requirements of azo dyes and formaldehyde content in fabrics for baby and children’s clothing

This is a new SNI standard developed to complement directive no. 72/M-IND/PER/7/2012.(1) This standard relates to health and safety and specifies the requirements of azo dyes and formaldehyde content in fabrics for baby and children’s clothing. This standard defines baby as up to 36 months and children’s as over 36 months. It applies to fabrics that are directly in contact with the skin, both made of woven and knitted fabrics of various types of fibers and fiber blends.
