In October 2018, the Food and Drugs Supervisory Agency (Badan Pengawas Obat dan Makanan or "BPOM") enacted Regulation No. 31 of 2018 on Processed Food Labels ("BPOM Regulation 31"). Before the issuance of BPOM Regulation 31, labeling rules on processed foods were governed under the following BPOM regulations:
(a) BPOM Regulation No. 27 of 2017 on Processed Food Registration
(b) BPOM Regulation No. 23 of 2016 on Labeling and Advertising of Information for Non-Additive Food
(c) BPOM Regulation HK.03.1.23.06.10.5166 of 2016 on Origins of Certain Material, Alcohol Content, and Expiration of Drug Labels, Traditional Drugs, Food Supplements and Food Information
BPOM Regulation 31 revokes the aforementioned regulations. With the issuance of BPOM Regulation 31, most provisions on processed food labeling are merged into one unified regulation.
