SDPPI Plans: SAR Test Results & BBPPT Forum


Ensuring Safety and Public Health

July 05, 2023 – In order to improve telecommunication device testing services, the Telecommunication Device Testing Center (Balai Besar Pengujian Perangkat Telekomunikasi / BBPPT) held a discussion forum located at the IPB International Convention Center. The SDPPI Plans discussion forum activity focused on improving testing services and providing information about the addition of required test reports.

In this activity, the Head of BBPPT Syaharuddin said that the main purpose of improving telecommunication device testing services is to ensure security, safety and public health in using telecommunication devices.

There has been a lot of news about telecommunications device exploding or experiencing other defects that can threaten the security, safety and health of users. Therefore, it is necessary to improve telecommunication device testing services to provide a more certain guarantee.

To achieve this goal, BBPPT organized offline and online discussion forums, attended by manufacturers, distributors, importers, and other entities related to telecommunications device testing.

Community Satisfaction Survey (SKM) Results

To improve public services for telecommunication device testing, BBPPT conducted a Community Satisfaction Survey (SKM). Based on the survey results, there are 4 indicators that need further action, namely regarding service completion time, requirements, service procedures / flow, and facilities and infrastructure.

The results noted in this discussion forum are about improving services to speed up the entire service process from registration to the issuance of the Test Results Report (LHU). In addition, the applicant requested that developments be made to SIMPEL such as integrating notifications of each testing process to be sent via WhatsApp or email.

Moving Towards SAR Test Requirements

At the end of the discussion, SDPPI conveyed plans to mandate every mobile phone product to attach SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) test results starting December 2023. There is a possibility for other products, such as laptops, smartwatches, smartbands, and other telecommunications devices with close proximity to the human body, to gradually be required to attach SAR test results as well.

Future Plans and Support

Although Indonesia currently does not have a lab for SAR testing, BBPPT has plans by 2024 to build a SAR test laboratory to test the safety of devices that have an impact on public health and is in the process of establishing regulations regarding SAR testing.

All these development plans for better results are certainly not easy and take time. Hence, we need the support of all Indonesian people to ensure the proper execution of this plan.
