Draft Bill on Job Creation (Rancangan Undang-Undang Cipta Kerja – RUU CK) which is drafted by using the Omnibus Law approach attempts to codify and integrate 79 laws, of which, the majority of them possessing different principles from one another. Omnibus Law approach is chosen with the expectation that it is able to reform licensing to become simpler, easily to be secured by businesses and giving impact toward the recruitment of workforce, as well as economic growth.
One of the affected laws is Law Number 32 of 2009 on Environmental Protection and Management (UU 32/2009). There are 30 articles under UU 32/2009 which are amended, 17 articles which are removed and 1 additional article. Amendment and removal of such articles generally raise negative impact toward UU 32/2009 and in the future implementation as well. There are at least 5 aspects which are certain to be affected, namely: risk-based business licensing, environmental licensing (environmental permit and AMDAL), access to information and public participation, supervision and law enforcement (strict liability/pertanggungjawaban mutlak).
