  1. Expected standard code: QCVN 132:2022/BTTTT
  1. Scope:
  • Digital enhanced cordless telecommunications – DECT (HS code 85171100)
  • Desktop computer (HS code 84714110)
  • Set Top Box in digital cable TV network (HS code 85287111, 85287119, 85287191, 85287199) 
  • Set Top Box in IPTV network (HS code HS 85287111, 85287119, 85287191, 85287199)
  • Receiver with built-in DVB-T2 signal reception (iDTV) (HS code 85287292, 85287299)
  • Amplifier equipment in cable television distribution system (HS code 85176249)
  • Wireless telephone equipment (subscription extension type) (HS code 85171100)
  • Notebook (laptop PC, notebook PC) (HS code 84713020)
  • Tablet (tablet PC) (HS code 84713090)

  1. The Ministry of Information and Communications (temporarily) accepts the test results of accredited in-country and out-country test labs in accordance with ISO/IEC 17025 according to the respective specifications in IEC 62368 -1:2018 to assess conformity with this regulation (QCVN 132:2022/BTTTT) until further guidance from MIC 
  2. It is almost certain that the MIC will include this QCVN (and related products and goods listed) on the List of goods subject to CoC, DoC (This list is reviewed, adjusted, and issued in July every year). In case MIC adds this standard to the new List of products subject to DoC and CoC (expected in July 2023), the importer/manufacturer still has 6 months to prepare for compliance, until then the manufacturer/importer needs to prepare the measurement results of an accredited testing laboratory in accordance with ISO/IEC 17025 for CoC/DoC, before MIC/VNTA can make changes the regulations on valid measurement results
