Technical Regulations on Electric Cars Ready to Roll
The Industry Ministry will issue technical regulations derived from Presidential Regulation No. 55/2019 on the electric vehicle program. The ministry’s director of Maritime Industry, Transportation, and Defense Equipment, Putu Juli Ardika, revealed that the government planned to issue two rules in the upcoming days.
The Industry Ministerial Regulation (Permenperin) on the electric vehicle’s specification, development roadmap, and local content (TKDN) calculation will be the first regulation. The second one will be Permenperin on the vehicle’s Completely Knock Down (CKD) and Incompletely Knock Down (IKD) provisions. “Both regulations are the result of thorough discussions with various industry associations, academics, research and development institutions, as well as technical teams from related ministries or institutions,” Putu explained.
