Principles for identification of products and goods likely to cause unsafety

On May 15, 2018, the Government issued Decree No.74/2018/ND-CP amending and supplementing a number of articles of the Government’s Decree No.132/2008/ND-CP dated December 31, 2008 detailing the implementation of a number of articles of the Law on Product and Goods Quality. The Decree took effect since July 1, 2018.

Accordingly, Decree No.74/2018/ND-CP stipulates the principle for identification of products and goods likely to cause unsafety as follows:

  1. Grounds of the principle:

–           Possibility of causing unsafety of the product or goods;

–           Requirements and ability to manage the state in each period.

  1. Possible hazards of a product or merchandise are identified based on one or more of the following:

–           The chemical, physical and biological nature;

–           Structure and principles of operation;

–           The process of transportation, storage, preservation and use.

  1. The ministries shall determine the products and goods which may cause unsafety and the HS codes in conformity with the List of Vietnamese Exports and Imports enclosed with the explanations of the reasons for their determination to elaborate relevant national technical regulations and management measures applicable to products and goods within their assigned branches or domains.

With detailed and specific regulations, Decree No.74/2018/ND-CP is expected to guide and instruct ministries, departments and agencies to institutionalize regulations on identification of products and goods likely to cause unsafety in the scope of management, thereby setting up a set of national technical regulations to manage these products.
