The Ministry of Communication and Informatics (MOCI) has issued a new draft ministerial regulation on over-the-top (OTT) services (2017 Draft OTT Regulation). The 2017 Draft OTT Regulation covers many of the same issues as were covered by the 2016 draft OTT regulation. The 2017 Draft OTT Regulation is still a work in progress and has not been formally issued as yet. Nor does the 2017 Draft OTT Regulation have any legal effect. The 2017 Draft OTT Regulation is still conceptual in nature and, as usual, principled based which leaves many questions unanswered.

As noted by the MOCI in its public expose on 7 August 2017, the MOCI will revise and further develop the 2017 Draft OTT Regulation. The 2017 Draft OTT Regulation will then be issued for public consultation and comments. Usually this public consultation period is quite short. It is likely that the MOCI will issue the revised 2017 Draft OTT Regulation through its official website or by an official press release.

The 2017 Draft OTT Regulation will need to be supplemented by regulations from the Indonesian Tax Office (ITO), likely to be issued by the Director General of Taxation (DGT), or it will need to be made clear how existing regulations will apply in the context of the 2017 Draft OTT Regulation.
