In Permendag Year 2007, as stated in Article 16 sentence (1), SPB is an import document in which there is a NPB. Meanwhile, in Permendag year 2015 stated that the NPB remains a must-have despite the provisions of the SPB eliminated. Besides, if previously SPB required in each import activity, NPB is now valid only for the period of validity of Certificate of Product
Marking (SPPT) SNI and can not be extended. It is just, NPB is already tebit before the Permendag 2015, shall remain valid.
Elimination SPB also changed the procedure of re-export. Previous, SPB application is rejected or if there are mismatches goods with SNI, then the employer must re-export. Now, if proven goods sold is not in accordance with the SNI, the NPB will be frozen until the businessmen present the results of the repairs to the government. Meanwhile, re-exports carried out if the employer found to have no NPB. As to the cost of implementation remains to be borne by the company.

Article 19 Regulation has been amended so that its provisions stipulates that each item or package to be traded shall mention NPB.
Even, now sanctions for negligence does not include NPB becomes more severe. Previous, if there is no NPB in the product or packaging, entrepreneurs only received a written warning. Now, sanctions imposed directly in the form of a ban on selling such products. If sanctions in one month does not provide a deterrent effect, NPB directly businessman frozen.
In terms of supervision SNI, Permendag 2015 add a new article. Article 6A requires that businesses that trade in goods shall know the identity of the supplier of goods merchantability.
