The Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC) in Vietnam issued a draft circular that will amend and supplement Circular 11/2020/TT-BTTTT and take effect July 1, 2021.  The expected changes are the following:

  • New standard numbers
  • 2G and 3G mobile phones to be removed from the list of products requiring mandatory Vietnam MIC type approval
  • For mobile phones with 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G functions, we expect the 2G and 3G functions to be omitted from the type approval review
