Changes Coming to MIC
On 24 June 2011 the government of Vietnam issued Decree No. 50/2011/ NĐ- CP, a measure that will change some of the organizational structure and functions of Vietnam's Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC).
Under the new changes, ICTQC, which has been responsible for evaluating telecommunications and radio equipment and issuing type approval, will no longer exist, and the Department of Telecommunications will become the Authority of Telecommunications.
The decree will take effect as of 15 August 2011.
It is not yet clear what the impact of these changes will be on manufacturers seeking type approval, but Compliance International is continuing to monitor the changes to support our clients.
