Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Dozens of mining companies are threatened with having their Mining Business Permits (IUP) revoked. The reason is, until now at least dozens of mining companies have not submitted their annual Work Plans and Budgets (RKAB) to the government.

The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) revealed that at least 37 mineral Mining Business License (IUP) holders have not submitted their Work Plans and Budgets (RKAB) to the government.

Plt. The Director General of Mineral and Coal (Dirjen Minerba) of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, Lt. Gen. TNI (Mar) (Purn) Bambang Suswantono, said that there are administrative sanctions for companies or IUP holders who do not submit RKAB.


First, Bambang said that there is a written warning sanction which will be given a maximum of three times with a maximum warning period of 30 calendar days for each.

“IUPs that do not submit RKAB will be given written warnings a maximum of 3 times,” said Bambang during the DPR RI Commission VII Hearing Meeting (RDP), Jakarta, Tuesday (7/11/2023).

Second, continued Bambang, there are also sanctions for temporary suspension or even revocation of permits for IUPs that have not carried out their obligations after the end of the warning period. “IUPs that receive written warning sanctions after the end of the written warning period have not carried out their obligations, due to administrative sanctions in the form of temporary suspension,” he added.

Meanwhile, Bambang emphasized that if the IUP has not carried out its obligations for a maximum of 60 calendar days, there will be administrative sanctions in the form of revocation of the IUP permit. “Administrative sanctions in the form of permit revocation are imposed on permit holders who do not carry out their obligations until the end of the period for imposing sanctions in the form of temporary suspension,” he said.

He explained that as of November 1 2023, there were 752 mineral IUP holders. Of this number, 444 IUPs have been approved for the 2023 RKAB/Amendment to RKAB before August 31 2023.

He said that an evaluation was currently being carried out in accordance with the provisions of Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources Decree No. 1806 of 2018 against 200 applications. He explained that initially there were 100 applications, but there were additional application data after combing through incoming emails and some did not continue with the evaluation because the IUP had expired or was not included in the Minerba One Data Indonesia (MODI) data.

“There are 37 business entities that have not submitted their RKAB,” he said.

Meanwhile, of the coal IUP holders, he did not mention the number of companies that had not submitted RKAB. He explained that as many as 948 IUP holders had submitted the 2023 RKAB.

Of this number, 890 IUPs have been approved by the RKAB and 51 have been rejected.
