Indonesia Amends Labeling Requirements for 2D Barcode on Cosmetics

Amendments to the labeling requirements for 2D barcode include the labeling method, color and shape, as well as the information that should appear after scanning.


On  Dec. 7, 2018, the Indonesia Food and Drug Supervisory Agency (BPOM) implemented the Application of 2D Barcode in the Control of Drugs and Food, which requires drugs (including cosmetics) and food packaging to be labeled with the 2D barcode (QR code) issued by BPOM.  Among the two types of 2D barcode, identification barcode and authentication barcode, the former applies to cosmetics.


2D barcode will be published on the electronic notification certificate for cosmetics. By scanning, consumers can see basic information about the product, such as the product name and notification number.

On Oct. 5, 2022, Indonesia BPOM issued and implemented the amended Application of 2D Barcode in the Control of Drugs and Food (hereafter referred to as “Regulation”), replacing the previous Application of 2D Barcode in the Control of Drugs and Food (2018). 1

The Regulation is divided into 7 chapters, 31 articles, and 1 appendix, which stipulates the 2D barcode’s definition, category, labeling requirements, and information that should appear after scanning, etc.
