The National Agency for Drug and Food Control (NADFC) was established based on Presidential Decree No. 103 on the Status, Tasks, Functions, Organizational Structure and Work Procedures of Non Departmental Government Agency, as already amended by Presidential Decree No. 64 of 2005. According to the regulations, NADFC is in charge of the Drug and Food Control to ensure health development efforts in Indonesia. The Mission of NADFC is embodied in a full-spectrum monitoring system, starting from pre-market to post-market control along with law enforcement and community empowerment.

In carrying out its mission, NADFC faces a lot of external challenges, obstacles and opportunities namely:

  1. ASEAN Harmonization and the globalization of food and drug control have led to the increase in the complexity of the competitiveness of domestic products, the potential for market disruption of local products and the potential rejection of export products. To cope with those challenges, the government has established policies that is pro-growth, among other things, the growing industry demand for registration services from 18,704 in 2008 to 30,092 in 2010 and certification of medical products and food through the provision of the Certificate of Import (SKI) and Certificates of Exports (SKE) from 38,506 in 2008 to 81,407 in 2010.
  2. Circulation of illegal and counterfeit products as well as increasing trans-national crimes such as narcotics, psychotropic substances and precursors as well as bioterrorism resulted in increasing public expectations for protection. Economic growth that continues to increase has created economic opportunities for manufacturers to provide products including illegal and counterfeit products. The circulation of illegal products will continue to happen as long as the public demand is still high and there is still a lack of knowledge and purchasing power.
  3. The increasing number of small and medium enterprises affected by economic crisis will raise the risk of the use of hazardous materials, chemicals, in products other than drugs and reduce certainty of products hygiene.
  4. Changes in society demand with the emergence of new diseases, a trend of going back to natural materials, and changes in modern lifestyles.

In order to achieve good governance, NADFC is obligated to carry out thorough Bureaucratic Reform through 5-year stages until 2025. Various regulatory foundations to accelerate the implementation of the Bureaucratic Reform have been issued by the Government, namely: 1) Presidential Regulation No. 81 of 2010 on Grand Design of Bureaucratic Reforms; 2) Ministry Regulation of State Apparatus Empowerment and Bureaucratic Reforms No. 20 Year 2010 on the Road Map of Bureaucratic  Reforms 2010-2014; and 3) Nine (9) Ministry Regulations of State Apparatus Empowerment and Bureaucratic Reforms as operational guidelines for the preparation and implementation of Bureaucratic Reforms in the Ministry/ Institutions and Local Government.
