Decree No. 74/2018/ND-CP of the Government, effective from July 1, 2018, has made importers and customs officials confused by customs clearance and radio communication equipment from July 1, 2018 to July 17, 2018. On July 17, 1818, the Ministry of Information and Communication has issued official letter guiding the implementation of Decree No. 74/2018/ND-CP:

  1. Application form before 01/08/2018:

- The products are listed in Appendix 1 of Circular No. 04/2018/TT-BTTTT of Ministry of Information and Communications: submit the certificate of conformity to customs.

- Products listed in Appendix 2 of Circular No. 04/2018/TT-BTTTT of Ministry of Information and Communications: submit the Receipt of conformity announcement.

  1. Form of application from date 01/08/2018:

- Procedures for importing products are listed in Appendix 1 and Appendix 2 of Circular No. 04/2018/TT-BTTTT of Ministry of Information and Communications of Vietnam in accordance with Decree 74/2018/ND-CP:  Produce "Quality inspection registration for Imported Goods" with certification of the specialized inspection agency (Department of Telecommunications) for customs clearance.

  • The dossier "Quality inspection registration for Imported Goods" under Point a, Clause 2a, Article 7 of Decree No. 132/ND-CP (added to Clause 3, Article 1 of Decree No. 74/2018/ND-CP).
  • - Pursuant to Article 2 of Decree No. 74/2018/ND-CP: Receipt of conformity announcement is the result of quality inspection of imported goods

    Due to these changes, products that were not previously required to obtain import licenses such as lithium batteries, laptops, desktops, switches, routers, firewalls, set-top boxes ... compulsory procedures for conformity announcement must be completed.

    There is a positive point to note that the process of obtaining samples for testing and Conformity certificate/Conformity announcement will be much easier. After "Registration of quality of imported products", the enterprise can immediately clear, take samples for testing and carry out procedures. This process is much faster and more convenient than applying for a temporary import license from Ministry of Information and Communications and Ministry of Industry and Trade.
