Background and legal basis

The primary disclosure rule in Indonesia is provided in Law No. 8 of 1995 concerning Capital Market Law, dated 10 November 1995 (the “Capital Market Law”).

The Capital Market Law sets out the following key principles regarding disclosure as follows:

  • Under the Capital Market Law, the process for making disclosures and making them available to the public is determined by the Indonesian Capital Market and Financial Institution Supervisory Agency (Badan Pengawas Pasar Modal dan Lembaga Keuangan - BAPEPAM-LK). Since 1 January 2013, this function is being carried out by the Indonesian Financial Services Authority (Otoritas Jasa Keuangan - OJK) as the new capital market regulator.
  • Persons are subject to the Capital Market Law in the following circumstances:
    • They hold at least 5% of the shares in an issuer or a public company;
    • They hold 50% or more of a particular stock.

Sanctions

CBL will not be responsible for any penalties or sanctions or associated costs that could be imposed upon CBL’s safekeeping account with its appointed custodian due to a customer's failure to comply with one or more disclosure requirements. Such penalties, sanctions or associated costs will be automatically passed on to the failing customer.
