Indonesia Government prepares RPP for business licensing in the region

KONTAN.CO.ID – JAKARTA. The government is currently preparing a draft Draft Government Regulation (RPP) on the Implementation of Business Licensing in the Region. This is to facilitate the licensing process trying in the area.

“This RPP we follow the conception of the Law on copyright work that is the integration of regulations and simplification of the number and form so that it is simpler related to licensing and procedures,” said Director of Deconcentration, Task Assistance and Cooperation, Ministry of Home Affairs (Kemendagri), Prabawa Eka Soesanta in a virtual discussion, Monday (30/11).

Prabawa said, this RPP to provide legal certainty in trying, improving the investment climate and business activities. As well as maintaining the quality of licensing that can be accounted for.

“It is necessary to support the implementation of business licensing in areas that are fast, easy, transparent, certain, simple, affordable, professional and integrity,” he said.

He said the licensing process in this RPP will use an online single submission (OSS) based on arisk-based approach(RBA). The government is currently preparing a risk-based approach (RBA) OSS application.

“The structure of the RPP in the last draft is approximately 80 articles. One-door integrated service unit (PTSP) becomes the sole organizer in the licensing process in the area,” he said.

Prabawa said that the licensing process seeks to be divided based on the level of risk. Starting from low-risk, medium-risk and high-risk business activities.

Basic licensing requirements include the suitability of space utilization activities, environmental approvals, and building approvals for certificates of function. The use of space must be adjusted to the detailed spatial plan (RDTR).

“We hope that later rdtr that we use RDTR based on digital. But when it does not exist we use the ruling of the authorized official for a while as a substitute for digital RDTR and we hope the two make no difference,” he explained.

Director of the Indonesian Employers Association (Apindo) Research Institute, Agung Pambudhi requested, in the implementation of OSS licensing the RBA places the government or local government as the holder of the authority that expressly takes the decision to issue business licenses.

Then, the need to affirm the positive fictitious principle that the application for permission is considered approved if within a certain time limit there is no decision from the local government. This reflects on what has been run in the relationship between the central and local governments.

“We in the business world hope that this positive fictitious principle can really be implemented and applied in a very basic principle of business licensing. This means that if all the conditions are met, the provisions have been implemented, there should be no more reason when no longer commenting, not approved and then past a certain time limit should be valid. This is a practice that has been pretty much applied by developed countries,” agung explained.

Meanwhile, Policy Analyst of the Regional Autonomy Implementation Monitoring Committee (KPPOD) Herman Suparman said, the government needs to prepare for the acceleration of RDTR preparations. Because this will also have an effect in granting licenses in the region.

KPPOD proposes the need to enter the pipeline to obtain environmental approval and waste management and B3 waste management. Starting from the application until the completion stage.

“It needs to be regulated flow A – Z to get this approval, although this general scr tp provide certainty to businesses / applicants how the procedure to get permission or approval of this environment,” explained Herman.
