MIC Vietnam going to grant Type Approval certificate directly under name of oversea manufacturers?


Regulations on implementation of Law on Product Quality and has been updated recently (Decree 74/2018/ND-CP of Vietnam government). There is a key change regarding imported products which can be understand briefly as below:

Before: Individual and organization (importer) is the subject who has to apply for type approval certification and declaration of conformity

Now:    Product is the subject which need to be certified, importer is the subject for declaration of conformity

The above change has opened possibility MIC to grant Type Approval certificates for oversea manufacturers like rest of the world. This content could be one of the key update in upcoming MIC Circular which is going to replace Circular 30/2011/TT-BTTTT and help the importers, manufacturers having smooth importation experience and reduce the compliance cost. Importers can imediately sell the products to the market after Product Quality Inspection Registration (PQIR) process (which contains Declaration of Conformity process), not have to wait to obtain a Type Approval certificate again.

ExtendMax's predictions on requirements and certification method:

1. Certification method 1 – Type Approval certification based on typical sample(s) testing

→ Granted for oversea manufacturer having ISO 9001 certified factory(ies)

 Oversea manufacturer can randomly pick up a sample or prepare a golden sample then have it tested at local labs in Vietnam or oversea labs recognized by MIC Vietnam (in US, Korea, Canada, and Singapore)

→ Type Approval certificate will be valid for 2 – 3 years and valid for any importers

→ No need factory inspections or annual fee

2. Certification method 5 – Type Approval certification based on typical sample testing together with factory inspection

→ Granted for oversea manufacturer not having ISO 9001 certified factory(ies)

→ Factory inspection will be required and samples randomly taken from manufacturing site

→ Type Approval certificate will be valid for 2 – 3 years and valid for any importers

→ Factory inspection will be required before certificate granting and anual re-inspection is required to maintain certificate validity
