Decision No. 14/2023/QD-TTg on new VNEEP product list and roadmap of implementation

AuthorTrần Thanh Phương

Lists of low-efficiency equipment subject to elimination (banned from import and domestic manufacturing and sale) and low-efficiency generating sets banned from development and application roadmaps.

EXTENDMAX - Following our article on draft version of the new Prime Minister's Decision on promulgating the list and roadmap of energy-using vehicles and equipment that must be eliminated and low energy efficiency electric generator sets not allowed to be built in order to eliminate the low energy efficiency equipment, the Prime Minister has signed official version Decision No. 14/2023/QD-TTg dated May 24, 2023 with few changes. Accordingly, many new products has been included in the list and must meet minimum energy efficiency such as induction hops, infrared hops, and desktop computers. Many products will have to apply a higher level of minimum energy performance standard (MEPS), apply for energy efficiency DoC and EE labelling according to the new version of TCVN 2021 such as television sets (TVs), ductless air conditioners, laptops. The Vietnam MOIT shall release a guidance for voluntary application before enforcement date, so the manufacturers and importers can apply the new standards in advance, instead of older version.

Specifically, the decision does not allow the import, manufacture and sale of energy-efficient equipment that does not meet the minimum energy efficiency levels specified in the respective National Technical Standards (TCVN) as follows:

(Equipment and TCVNs marked in cyan color are new TCVNs or newly added devices to the list, or now must apply new TCVN with higer MEPS requirements)
