PBG Persetujuan Bangunan Gedung

How to Apply for a Building Permit PBG in Indonesia

All buildings in Indonesia are supposed to have a building permit known as a PBG (Persetujuan Bangunan Gedung) and a certificate of permitted use known as an SLF (Sertifikat Laik Fungsi) for the building. These replace the earlier building permit or IMB (Ijin Mendirikan Bangunan).

The PBG specifies the approved design of the building and continues through the life of the building. The SLF specifies what the building can be used for and must be periodically renewed. Here we look at what the PBG and SLF are, what they do, requirements and how to apply for them.
