2020 LED lighting products to enter the Vietnamese market regulations
From January 1, 2020, Vietnam began to enforce the energy efficiency labeling plan for LED lighting products.
According to the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MOIT) Resolution 04/2017 / QD-TTg Decision, LED lights are included in the control targets of Vietnam's energy efficiency regulations. Energy efficiency labels can only be applied after they meet the minimum energy efficiency standards and obtain a declaration of energy efficiency compliance. Sold to the Vietnamese market, the mandatory implementation date is January 1, 2020.
1.Decision No.04 / 2017 / QD-TTg: The equipment list that complies with Vietnam energy efficiency regulations;
2.Circular 36/2016 / TT-BCT: in accordance with Vietnam's National Energy Efficiency Plan (VNEEP) compliance declaration procedure and required documents;
3.Decision No. 4889 / QD-BCT: The official announcement and guideline for applying the MEPS standard for LED lighting.
1.TCVN 11843: 2017-Test methods for LED bulbs, LED lamps and LED modules;
2. TCVN 11844: 2017-Energy efficiency of LED lighting products.
Note: At the initial stage of compulsory, only M27 and B22 self-ballasted LED bulbs and G5 and G13 double-headed LED lamps with a maximum power of 60W and a nominal voltage not exceeding 250V are mandatory. The MEPS implementation road map for other products (LED luminaires, LED modules, etc.) will be released by MOIT in the future. You can also apply for voluntary energy label certification.
DoC program application documents:
1. Vietnam Energy Efficiency Declaration of Conformity (DoC);
2. Energy efficiency test report;
3. Energy label design.
Note: The licensee is only allowed to use the Vietnam Energy Efficiency Label after completing the DoC procedure.
Energy efficiency label style for lighting products:
From June 1, 2020, Vietnam began to enforce the CR Mark on the safety and EMC control of LED lighting products.
In September 2019, the Ministry of Science and Technology of Vietnam (MOST) issued Circular No.08 / 2019 / TT-BKHCN, approved the technical regulations QCVN19: 2019 / BKHCN for the safety and EMC requirements of LED lighting products, and implemented CR Mark certification.
From June 1, 2020, domestic and imported LED lights must meet safety and electromagnetic interference (EMI) requirements (QCVN19: 2019 / BKHCN Section 2.1.2; 2.1.3 and 2.2.1);
From June 1, 2021, domestic and imported LED lights must meet all requirements of QCVN19: 2019 / BKHCN: including safety, EMI and EMS;
Encourage individuals and companies to voluntarily apply for certification of LED lights according to QCVN19: 2019 / BKHCN from December 31, 2019.
