As stipulated in Circular 30/2011/TT-BTTTT of MIC Vietnam, ICT conformity mark has been applied to radio transmitters and information technology managed by Ministry of Information and Communications since 2011...

Assigned by the Government of Vietnam as the focal point in the field of code compliance and conformity certification, other ministries such as the Ministry of Information and Communications, Ministry of Transport follow the general guidelines and regulations on certification of code compliance and conformity of MOST in relevant fields. From July 1, 2018, the general management modalities for products of group 2 (potentially unsafe goods) in accordance with the regulations of the Ministry of Information and Communication and the Ministry of Science and Technology have been gradually agreed, starting with the process of "Registration for quality inspection" of imported products.

As stipulated in Circular 30/2011/TT-BTTTT of MIC Vietnam, ICT conformity mark has been applied to radio transmitters and information technology managed by Ministry of Information and Communications since 2011. In addition, the Ministry of Science and Technology uses another conformity mark (CR Mark) for household appliances subject to electrical safety certification and electro-magnetic compatibilty certification (EMC). Ministry of Transport, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Construction also use the conformity mark as Ministry of Science and Technology.

Currently, the Department of Telecommunications still issues CODE for importers and requires applicants to register ICT mark, but this process cannot be tightly controlled as before the Department of Telecommunications has canceled the procedure for submission of regulation conformity announcement and issued "Announcement of acceptance of conformity announcement" according to the procedure in Circular 30/2011/TT-BTTTT.

In the near future, it will be more convenient for manufacturers and importers if MIC and STC use the same mark as more and more home appliances have internet functions for IoT in Revolutionary era No. 4.0.
