Socialization of Radio Frequency Violation by Balmon Kominfo

Cerapproval International attended the Socialization of Administrative Penalty Sanctions on the Supervision of the Use of Radio Frequency Spectrum and/or Telecommunication Devices organized in Indonesia by the Administrative Penalty Management Team of the Radio Frequency Spectrum Monitoring Institute (Balmon Kominfo) on Friday, May 7, 2024.

This socialization discusses administrative penalty sanctions for the improper use of radio frequencies in Indonesia. There are several regulations that can serve as references for operators of telecommunication devices in carrying out their operations, including:

  • PP No. 5 of 2021 concerning Risk-Based Business Licensing
  • PP No. 46 of 2021 concerning Postal, Telecommunication, and Broadcasting
  • PP No. 43 of 2023 concerning Types of Non-Tax State Revenue Applicable to the Ministry of Communication and Informatics
  • PM Kominfo No. 7 of 2021 concerning the Use of Radio Frequency Spectrum
  • PM Kominfo No. 9 of 2023 concerning Implementation Guidelines for the Determination of Rates for Types of Non-Tax State Revenue Applicable to the Resource and Post and Informatics Device Sectors

3 Types of Violation

The imposition of administrative fines for violations of Radio Frequency Spectrum/Telecommunication Device misuse is classified into 3 types:

  • Violations of IPFR (Radio Frequency Band Permit)
  • Violations of ISR (Radio Station Permit)
  • Violations of APT (Telecommunication Device)

The formula for calculating fines for SFR/APT misuse based on Presidential Regulation No. 43 of 2023 Articles 20-21 is as follows:


Violation Points = Violation Index x Maximum Points x Weight Percentage

Here is a simulation of administrative fine calculation amounting to Rp500,000.000 for APT violations by company X, which sells uncertified telecommunications devices from abroad in the territory of Indonesia.
