Unexpected impact due to implementation of MIC new technical regulations since 01 July 2019 and how to avoid


EXTENDMAX - As listed on our previous news article, there are 6 MIC new standards are going to be implemented since July 2019 as below:

(1) QCVN 118:2018/BTTTT (replace TCVN 7189:2009 and TCVN 7600:2010)

(2) QCVN 66:2018/BTTTT (replace QCVN 66:2013/BTTTT)

(3) QCVN 16:2018/BTTTT (replace QCVN 16:2010/BTTTT)

(4) QCVN 37:2018/BTTTT (replace QCVN 37:2011/BTTTT)

(5) QCVN 44:2018/BTTTT (replace QCVN 44:2011/BTTTT)

(6) QCVN 57:2018/BTTTT (replace QCVN 57:2011/BTTTT)

So what are unexpected impacts and how to avoid?

1. EMC report according to EN 55022 / CISPR 22 or TCVN 7189:2009 shall not be accepted by VNTA since 01 July 2019

From 01 July 2019, regulated technical standard required for ITE and MME including desktop PC, Notebook / Laptop PC, Tablet PC, Server, Router, Gateway… shall be QCVN 118:2018/BTTTT. Manufacture need to submit EMC report according to CISPR 32:2015 or new Vietnamese standard QCVN 118:2018/BTTTT issued by local test laboratories or oversea test laboratories which are recognized by MIC Vietnam for QCVN 118:2018/BTTTT under MRA.

MIC has introduced this standard since May 2018 so applicants has really long time to prepare for implementation the new standard. But how to prepare?


- TCVN 7189:2009 (equal to CISPR 22:2006 / EN 55022:2006) is a really old standard which are not applicable in Europe anymore, MIC Vietnam has continuously accept CISPR 32:2015 / EN 55032:2015 test report to replace TCVN 7189:2009 for Declaration of Conformity under official guidance for MIC Circular No. 42/2016/TT-BTTTT (Guidance letter No. 886/BTTTT-KHCN dated 17 March 2017) and official guidance for MIC Circular No. 04/2018/TT-BTTTT (Guidance letter No. 1551/BTTTT-KHCN dated 21 May 2018)

- QCVN 118:2018/BTTTT is completely equal to CISPR 32:2015 / EN 55032:2015

Therefore CISPR 32:2015 / EN 55032:2015 issued by local test laboratories or oversea test laboratories which are recognized by MIC Vietnam for QCVN 118:2018/BTTTT under MRA will be accepted for MIC Declaration of Conformity before and after 01 July 2019

This is a wise solution which we have advised our customers since late of 2018 to minimize unexpected impact due to implementation of QCVN 118:2018/BTTTT on 01 July 2019.


Test items of QCVN 118 and CISPR 32 shows both are equivalent

2. ADoC issued by VNTA which listed TCVN 7189:2009 shall be invalid since 01 July 2019
