The length of the Indonesian coastline is based on calculations from the Work Team Standardization of the Island Name reaching 99,000 (ninety nine thousand) Kilometers which indicates that there is potential for salt production in Indonesia. But not all coastlines in Indonesia can be used as salt production centers because of several factors that influence them. However, the salt production sector in Indonesia has become a means of living for businesses in the salt sector, especially the Salt Farmers, so that the salt produced is called people's salt. At present, the people's salt production has not been able to meet industrial needs because the salt specifications and quantity cannot meet the industry's needs so the solution is to import industrial salt. The enactment of Government Regulation Number 9 of 2018 concerning Procedures for Import Control for Fisheries Commodities and Concentration as Raw Materials and Industrial Assistance provides an entry way for imported salt for industrial needs. But on the other hand, people's salt production is currently in the stage of increasing quality and quantity due to weather factors that support and the application of technology that is empowered to support industrial needs are being implemented. In this case a problem arises when people's salt is unable to compete with the presence of imported salt because the industrial needs have been met by the presence of imported salt, so that with this problem the community salt farmers need legal protection in the process of marketing their salt in Indonesia.Keywords: Peopleâ€™s Salt; Salt Import; Protection.
