Author(s): Asina Marina Sihombing, Yusuf Adiwibowo, Fendi Setyawan


The importance of consumer protection regarding the use of polycarbonate plastic packaging is reinforced by BPOM findings which prove that exposure to BPA in AMDK has exceeded the threshold and has serious impacts on health. This research is normative juridical research, with a statutory and conceptual approach. This article discusses legal protection, the responsibilities of the government and business actors, as well as the efforts that need to be taken if losses are caused by polycarbonate plastic packaging that contains dangerous substances. Several existing regulations have not been able to stop business actors who ignore standardization regarding the use of polycarbonate packaging and harm consumers. Business actors need to have the awareness to trade products that comply with applicable standards, the government needs to provide guidance and supervision and consumers who have experienced losses can take efforts to resolve disputes outside the court and in court. The participation of all parties is needed so that problems regarding polycarbonate plastic packaging containing dangerous substances can be prevented and resolved.
