The Ministry of Information and Communication (MIC) of Vietnam has issued Circular 11/2021/TT-BTTTT, which includes the new standard QCVN 65:2021/BTTTT for 5 GHz devices in Vietnam. The new standard QCVN 65:2021/BTTTT will come into effect on May 1, 2022, but it will be mandatory starting July 1, 2023.
5 GHz devices are allowed to import using Type Approval certificates under either QCVN 65:2013/BTTTT or QCVN 65:2021/BTTTT until July 1, 2023. After, Type Approval certificates for 5 GHz devices must be updated to QCVN 65:2021/BTTTT to ensure a smooth importation process. At this time local labs in Vietnam have not been accredited to test QCVN 65:2021/BTTTT, and the Vietnam Approval Authority has not yet issued Type Approval certificates under the new standard.
