Vietnam – Guidance for implementation of Circular 04/2018/TT-BTTTT

MIC has released official guidance (Document 1551/BTTTT-KHCN) for the implementation of Circular 04/2018/TT-BTTTT.

The guidance document includes:

  • Despite the new categorization of low power 2.4GHz and 5GHz devices in Circular 04/2018/TT-BTTT, the guidance document clarifies that devices with EIRP less than 60mW are exempt from MIC approval (a continuation of the current situation)
  • Lithium-ion batteries for mobile phones, tablets, and notebook PCs require a Declaration of Conformity according to item 2.6 – Safety requirement of QCVN 101:2016/BTTTT (equivalent to IEC 62133). Continuation of previous guidance avoids the need for in-country testing.
