Gap Analysis Kesiapan Indonesia dalam Mengadopsi Standar Lingkungan Organisation for Ekonomic Cooperation and Development (OECD)
This study investigates Indonesia's readiness, particularly in terms of regulatory readiness, to adopt OECD environmental standards, especially in chemical safety and biosafety, as well as climate change standards. Through gap analysis, the potential steps towards improvement and acceleration in adopting standards similar to OECD countries can be identified.

The study found that there are still several aspects that Indonesia needs to enhance in terms of regulations and field implementation to meet OECD standards and principles, facilitating its accession process. Various improvements in regulations and implementation are identified in this study based on difficulty levels, timelines, and action steps required to achieve compliance with OECD standards and principles.

The study results indicate the existence of environmental and chemical and biosafety standard gaps between Indonesia and the OECD. Approximately 57% of environmental standards still lack implementation, even though the regulations align with OECD principles. Most OECD principles related to chemicals and biosafety are already incorporated into Indonesian regulations; however, the implementation of 56% of standards does not yet meet OECD criteria.

In terms of difficulty in compliance, the majority of environmental standards face low (38.1%) and high (33%) difficulty levels. Regarding chemical and biosafety standards, only about 11% encounter high difficulty. Both environmental and chemical and biosafety standards can be met in the short and medium term (with normal effort). However, if Indonesia aims to expedite compliance to promptly join the OECD, it needs to accelerate the fulfillment of standards in the medium and long-term compliance categories.
