Indonesia launches safeguard investigation on articles of apparel and clothing accessories

Indonesia has initiated on October 1, 2020 a safeguard investigation on articles of apparel and clothing accessories. The applicant for the case in Indonesia is the Indonesian Textile Association (API).

Such safeguard actions might result in restricted imports if the increased imports of the product are found to be causing, or threatening to cause, serious injury.

There is a large amount of products under investigation comprising the following HS codes 6101,  6102, 6103, 6104, 6105, 6106, 6109, 6110, 6111, 6117, 6201, 6202, 6203, 6204, 6205, 6206, 6209, and 6214.

Since this safeguard case is of importance to sporting goods companies, the WFSGI Trade Committee has decided to actively participate by registering the WFSGI and individual WFSGI member companies as interested parties.

The deadline for registering as an interested party was October 15, 2020, but if any companies would be interested in actively participating through the WFSGI, please contact Marc Magnus at
