The publication "Indonesias and Germanys QI Systems at a Glance: A Comparative Analysis” provides a detailed analysis of the Quality Infrastructure (QI) systems and laws of both countries. It highlights the similarities, differences, and best practices by presenting case studies, prospects for QI systems, and recommendations in a comparative manner.


QI is a complex system of comprising organisations, services and technical specifications to build trust in the quality of products and services. An efficient and effective QI system enhances competitiveness, provides market access, improves productivity and fosters product and process innovation. It also helps to protect the environment, ensures safety and promotes the health of citizens.


This publication looks at Indonesia’s and Germany's differing legal and regulatory frameworks for QI. Germany has no overarching law but single laws for each QI component influenced by EU legislation in the interest of the EU single market. Indonesia has one overarching QI law, complemented by a legal metrology law. Its membership in ASEAN does not directly influence its QI legislation.
