The Ministry of Trade Regulation No. 50 of 2020 is very important for e-commerce business activities considering that it regulates trade licensing for trade actor in electronic system to ensure that the consumers’ rights are protected. This regulation is aligned also with the obligation that is mandated by Article 65 of Law No. 7 of 2014 on Trade Affairs that requires online merchants to provide data and information to the public completely and correctly. This requirement helps ensure that consumers acquire reliable information related to the merchant and goods sold electronically.

However, during this meeting the Ministry of Trade mentioned that there are some exemptions to the licensing requirements as stipulated by the Minister of Trade Regulation No. 50 of 2020 for informal businesses. During the meeting, EuroCham conveyed its appreciation to the Ministry of Trade that have tried to create transparency related to the registration of licenses for online merchants.
