In the implementation of the law, especially Article 30 Paragraph (1), received many complaints from Indonesian trading partners, such as the United States and New Zealand who stated that these rules were inconsistent with the GATT provisions. The research method in writing this journal is a normative juridical approach method. In summary, the conclusions from the results of the first discussion, the protection of farmers in addressing world trade is regulated in Article 30 Paragraph (1) of the article aimed at protecting farmers as food producers from loss of price risk due to uncontrolled import of agricultural commodities. Second, Responding to the DS 477-478 WTO ruling it is necessary to revise Article 30 Paragraph (1) because it is contrary to the principle of quantitative restrictive prohibition.
