MIC released new Circular 04/2018/TT-BTTTT in May,2018 which stipulates that no more IEC 62133:2012 report issued by overseas accredited laboratory is accepted in July 1, 2018. Local test is necessity while applying for ADoC certificate.
QCVN101：2016/BTTTT（refer to IEC 62133：2012)
The Vietnamese government issued a new decree No. 74/2018 / ND-CP on May 15, 2018 to stipulate that two types of products imported into Vietnam are subject to PQIR (Product Quality Inspection Registration) application when being imported to Vietnam.
Based on this law, the Ministry of Information and Communication (MIC) of Vietnam issued the official document 2305/BTTTT-CVT on July 1, 2018, stipulating that the products under its control (including batteries) must be applied for PQIR when being imported into Vietnam. SDoC shall be submitted to complete the customs clearance process. The official date of entry into force of this regulation is August 10, 2018. PQIR is applicable to a single import to Vietnam, that is, every time an importer imports goods, he shall apply for PQIR (batch inspection) + SDoC.
However, for importers who are urgent to import goods without SDOC, VNTA will temporarily verify PQIR and facilitate customs clearance. But importers need to submit SDoC to VNTA to complete the entire customs clearance process within 15 working days after customs clearance. (VNTA will no longer issue the previous ADOC which is only applicable to Vietnam Local Manufacturers)
