August 06, 2020

The Ministry of Information and Communications (MiC Vietnam certification) of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam has approved Circular No.15/2020/TT-BTTTT at the beginning of July 2020. According to the Circular, new national technical regulation QCVN 101:2020/BTTTT becomes effective. This document establishes the requirements for lithium batteries used for portable equipment such as mobile phones, tablets, and laptop PCs.

The regulation was worked based on both international IEC 61960-3:2017 and national standards TCVN 11919-2:2017 (IEC 62133-2:2017). Although, it is not identical to these standards and has its own provisions. If your product meets the requirements of IEC 61960-3:2017 it is not enough to show compliance with this new regulation.

The regulation of MiC Vietnam certification QCVN 101:2020/BTTTT will come into force from July 1, 2021. Up to this time, QCVN 101:2016/BTTTT “National technical regulation on lithium batteries for portable applications” is valid. The regulation covers minimum technical requirements that would help to manage and evaluate the quality of lithium batteries for handheld devices including removable lithium batteries or embedded in mobile phones, tablets, and laptops.
