Some Companies Have Received Tin RKAB, Can They Export?

Jakarta, Timerilis.com – Plh. Director General (Dirjen) of Mineral and Coal (Minerba) of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources Idris Sihite ensures the Tin Commodity Budget Work Plan (RKAB) continues running despite the discourse on the tin export ban in early 2023.

Idris said several RKABs have been issued for State-Owned Enterprises (BUMN) and private companies. But, did not mention how many and which companies.

“Private, state-owned enterprises, entrepreneurs, there is a process. Anyway, those who submit to us, if they meet the requirements, we will issue them,” Idris said at the EMR Sector Performance Achievement in 2022 and Work Program in 2023, Jakarta, Monday (30/1/2023).

When mentioned that there are three Competent Person Indonesia (CPI) whose status has been temporarily suspended since November 10, 2022, Idris said they were from tin and nickel commodities.

“Maybe yes (CPI suspended) yesterday not only from tin there was also from nickel,” he said.

CPI has a strategic role in validating the balance of reserves. So, strict supervision of the accountability and professionalism of the services provided is required.

According to Idris, the RKAB has not been issued for mineral and coal companies. Since the company does not complete the requirements in the RKAB.

Meanwhile, the President Director of PT Timah Achmad Ardianto said, for the RKAB of PT Timah, which is a state-owned company for 2023, has been issued and it is certain that it can export in 2023 with adjusted production.

“Already can export. Production is still adjusting,” said Achmad, last Wednesday (25/1/2023).

President Director of TF Exchange PTE LTD, Indra Tukimin, who is a tin buyer in Singapore, said that the tin export ban in 2023 will not be enforced if seen from the readiness of the tin industry in Indonesia.

“The tin export ban will not be implemented in 2023, because it is not ready. They also know that to stop tin, they must make a direct downstream to its use,” said Indra Tukimin.

Indra revealed several private companies he knew had received RKABs, such as PT Mitra Stania Prima, PT Babel Surya Alam Lestari, PT Rajawali Rimba Perkasa, and PT Aries Kencana Sejahtera.

There are several smelters that have received the RKAB. MSP, BSAL, RRP, and AKS, and several have received it,” he said.

From his experience in the tin world, he assessed that the process of issuing RKAB for companies is carried out in stages until February of each year.

“Usually Indonesia does not give the RKAB at once, but little by little until February,” he said.
