AIP BP/ASC Seminar series Management of Aquaculture Business Permits Based on OSS-RBA

Situbondo, 23 Juni 2022

Shrimp products are an essential commodity in aquaculture in Indonesia. Shrimp is a source of animal protein which is the mainstay of exports to large countries such as the United States and China. The Indonesian government has planned to increase national shrimp production by up to 250% by 2024, which is a challenge for stakeholders. Especially for shrimp farming actors, it will be a big challenge to increase the productivity and survival of the commodity.

One of the supporting factors in the sustainability of the shrimp farming business is the fulfillment of permits for the farm. This year the regulations for licensing shrimp farms, mainly for shrimp ponds in Situbondo, changed and had to go through the OSS-RBA (Online Single Submission-Risk Based Approach) and JOSS (East Java Online Single Submission) systems. Several farmers were constrained in the licensing process. In dealing with this problem, YSAI collaborated with the Animal Husbandry and Fisheries Service of Situbondo Regency and held an AIP Workshop with the theme “Management of Aquaculture Business Permits Based on OSS-RBA” on Thursday, 23 June 2022, by presenting resource persons from the Husbandry and Fisheries Service of Situbondo. One-Stop Integrated Service and Investment Service (DPMPTSP) and the Environment Agency (DLH). The participants who attended were 35 people who were ASTIN farmers registered in the ASC-IP Program (Aquaculture Stewardship Council-Improver Program) and several stakeholders from shrimp farming..

The event was opened by Ir. M. Arief Noeroellah, M.Si said that, currently, the process of obtaining permits is still not widely understood by farmers. It is hoped that with this activity, farmers can understand the licensing flow and its requirements. The material for the first workshop was presented by Totok Wijayanto S.Pi, M.Si., who conveyed material regarding SIPPA and SLO Genset licensing arrangements through the JOSS system. To enter the JOSS system and take care of SIPPA and SLO Genset licensing is relatively easy by going to the web then selecting the Energy and Mineral Resources menu. After clicking, the flow and requirements will appear in licensing management.

The second material is the submission of the commitments that farmers must fulfill in the OSS RBA through a Technical Approval related to the Environmental Service, one of which is the SPPL (Statement of Environmental Management) for ponds with an area of less than 10 Ha, which can be obtained through the NIB. or OSS RBA System. In the SPPL, farmers must fulfill several things, namely Technical Agreements regarding the management of aquaculture wastewater and Technical Details of B3 Waste storage areas, which must be fulfilled. In fulfilling the technical approval for waste management, it must contain several things, including a description of the activities and characteristics of wastewater, wastewater management, prediction of wastewater distribution, and monitoring the surrounding environment at least every six months.

Officers delivered the third material from the One-Stop Service and Investment Service (DPMPTSP). Business licenses through the OSS RBA are pretty easy to fulfill. Still, if some commitments are not fulfilled, then the government will efficiently carry out the revocation of business licenses. There are two business categories discussed at the RBA OSS Workshop: UMK (Micro Small Business) with business capital below 5 billion and non-UMK (not micro and small business) with capital above 5 billion. OSS RBA licensing documents for MSEs are NIB, Standard Certificate, Independent Statement of Willingness to Meet Business Standards, SPPL (Statement of Ability to Manage and Monitor the Environment), PKPLH (Statement of Ability to Manage Environment), PKPLH Approval from the Regent, K3L (Safety, Security), Environmental Function Preservation), Statement Letter for Micro or Non-Micro Enterprises Related to Spatial Planning. Licensing documents for NON-UMK businesses are PKKPR (Approval of Activities for Conformity of Space Utilization, NIB (BUSINESS INDUSTRY NUMBER), STANDARD CERTIFICATE, PKPLH (Statement of Commitment to Environmental Management and Monitoring), K3L (Safety, Security, Preservation of Environmental Functions), Statement of Willingness to Fulfillment Obligation.

The YSAI team made several important notes from this workshop, including the OSS RBA-based Licensing that stakeholders have not fully understood regarding the licensing system and the requirements needed to complete the licensing process. Further workshops need to be conducted, bringing together relevant stakeholders, especially policymakers, with the intention of; Creating an OSS-based licensing process flowchart, Outlining all the required requirements, and Reviewing derivatives or commitments that arise from OSS.
