New National Standards and Approvals

The Ministry of Information and Communication (MIC) of Vietnam released Circular No.2/2022/TT-BTTTT, replacing Circulars 11/2020/TT-BTTTT and 01/2021/TT-BTTTT on May 16,2022.

Under the MIC Type Approval and Self-assessment DoC scope, the Ministry of Information and Communication prescribes a new list of items. From July 1, 2022, the Circular No. 2/2022/TT-BTTTT will be in effect.

Below are the highlights for the new standards including:

  • QCVN 22:2021/BTTTT (for safety of ICT product, enforced for DECT phone only at this moment)
  • QCVN 65:2021/BTTTT (RF for WLAN 5GHz)
  • QCVN 123:2020/BTTTT (RF for 40GHz ~ 246GHz SRD)
  • QCVN 124:2021/BTTTT (RF for 76GHz ~ 77GHz vehicle radar)
  • QCVN 127:2021/BTTTT (RF for 5G NR SA mobile terminal)
  • QCVN 129:2021/BTTTT (RF for 5G NR NSA mobile terminal)
  • According to The Ministry of Information and Communication, the list applies only to products and goods having HS code and descriptions specified in Group 2.

    Due to the lack of a 5G callbox in Vietnamese laboratories, they may not be able to test and obtain MIC accreditation for QCVN 127:2021/BTTTT and QCVN 129:2021/BTTTT until the middle of 2023.o address this issue, the Vietnam MIC has decided to allow test reports generated by ISO/IEC 17025 test laboratories to be used in the certification process.Please double-check that the ISO/IEC 17025 test standards are the same as the ones referred to in QCVN 127:2021/BTTTT and QCVN 129:2021/BTTTT.

    Because the Vietnam MIC operates both QCVN 65:2013/BTTTT and QCVN 65:2021/BTTTT, corporations and people can apply for Type Approval using either version.However, for new applications, the client should apply for the new version QCVN 65:2021/BTTTT Type Approval certificate, which has a longer validity period.

    Organizations and individuals can continue to utilize existing Type Approval certificates listing QCVN 65:2013/BTTTT for items that will be phased out before July 1, 2023, and do not need to re-apply for QCVN 65:2021/BTTTT if the certificate will not expire before July 1, 2023.
