Indonesia's Ministry of Trade (MOT) recently issued a regulation on the distribution of goods.
MOT Regulation No. 22/M-DAG/PER/3/2016 regarding General Provisions on the Distribution of Goods (MOT Reg 22/2016) stipulates that goods can be distributed directly or indirectly to consumers within Indonesia. It revokes Minister of Industry and Trade Decree No. 23/MPP/Kep/1/1998 regarding Trade Business Agencies.
The indirect distribution of goods can be done by (i) chain distribution involving a distributor and its network (ii) an agent and its network or (iii) franchise. The direct distribution of goods is conducted by way of special distribution through single-level marketing or multi-level marketing.
Distributor is defined as a distribution business actor acting on its own behalf and appointed by a manufacturer/producer, supplier or importer based on an agreement to carry out the distribution of goods. An agent is a distribution business actor acting as an intermediary for and on behalf of another party, appointed by an agreement to carry out the distribution of goods.
