  • MIC has just issued the Circular 10/2020/TT-BTTT

    Ministry of Information and Communication (MIC) has just issued the Circular 10/2020/TT-BTTTT which amends and supplements Circular 30/2011/TT-BTTTT and Circular 15/2018/TT-BTTTT. 

    Circular 10/2020/TT-BTTTT will enter into force on July 01, 2020. 

    All certificates which have been and will be issued before July 01, 2020 will remain valid until the indicated expiry date.

    The main changes which are part of the regulation are the following:

    - Besides Vietnam Telecommunication Authority (VNTA), there will be new certification centers which are designated by MIC

    - Certification method 7 (per-lot approval) has been added. This method mentions that the certification center will issue the type approval certificate for each imported shipment, so the certificate will be valid for one shipment only.

    The method will only be applied if the usual certification methods are not possible.

    - MIC allows to issue the certificate under the manufacturer‘s name, but if importers wish to use the certificates under the manufacturer name, they need to be authorized by the manufacturer

    - MIC accepts the SDoC under the name of manufacturer, but if importers wish to use the SDoC under the name of the manufacturer, the importer’s permission is required

    - Form of the type approval certificate has changed

  • Vietnam releases new circular for SRD

  • Test Report Requirements for 2G and 3G Devices

    MIC, Vietnam’s Ministry of Information and Communications, announced that as of 2017-06-01 local test reports for 2G and/or 3G devices will no longer be accepted for Type Approval.

    Applications for these products must have test reports (for the 2G/3G portion) issued by a recognized foreign laboratory, as listed on MIC’s MRA list for 2G/3G.

    Due to the numerous complaints from local importers and local manufacturers about this new policy, MIC appears to be reconsidering their decision. A final decision by MIC is expected soon. Until then, local test reports for 2G/3G technology are no longer accepted.


  • New EMC Requirement for 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz WiFi Devices

    The new circular No. 05/2014/TT-BTTTT comes into effect on 2014-03-19 in Vietnam, requiring WIFI equipment (2.4GHz, 5GHz) to meet the additional compliance requirements of QCVN18:2010 (equivalent to EN 300 339:1998).

Type A Plug

Netzspannung
220V

Netzfrequenz
50Hz
Description
The Type A electrical plug (or flat blade attachment plug) is an ungrounded plug with two flat parallel pins. Although the American and Japanese plugs appear identical, the neutral pin on the American plug is wider than the live pin, whereas on the Japanese plug both pins are the same size. As a result, Japanese plugs can be used in the US but often not the other way around. The pins on Type A and Type B plugs have a hole near the tip that fits into ‘bumps’ found on the contact wipers of some sockets, so that the pins are gripped more tightly allowing for better contact and also to prevent the plug from slipping out of the socket. Some sockets have spring-action blades that grip the sides of the pins, making the holes obsolete.

Description
The Type C electrical plug (or Europlug) is a two-wire plug that has two round pins. It fits into any socket that accepts 4.0 – 4.8 mm round contacts on 19 mm centres. They are being replaced by E, F, J, K or N sockets which work perfectly with Type C plugs. Type C plugs are generally limited for use in appliances that require 2.5 amps or less.

Description
The Type F electrical plug (also known as a Schuko plug) has two 4.8 mm round pins spaced 19 mm apart. It is similar to the Type E plug but has two earth clips on the side rather than a female earth contact. The CEE 7/7 plug was developed to work with sockets E and F and has grounding clips on both sides (to work with Type F sockets) and a female contact (to accept the grounding pin of the type E socket). Type F plugs are rated 16 amps.
