New Rules in Vietnam for Wireless Devices
Effective on February 14, 2017, Vietnam’s Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC) newly released Circular 46/2016/TT-BTTTT came into effect. Please see below for important changes found in the new Circular:
1) Output power limit for WLAN products operating in 2400 – 2483.5 MHz is increased from 100 mW to 200 mW.
2) For UHF RFID, the band 920-925 MHz is changed to 918-923 MHz.*
3) Wireless charging technology is permitted on the following frequency bands: 9 - 148.5 kHz, 326.5 kHz, 340 kHz, 6.765 - 6.795 MHz.
4) 924-925 MHz is no longer available for Cordless Telephones.
5) A new band of 4200-4800 MHz is allocated to ultra-wide band devices.
6) New bands are allocated to frequency alerting and detecting devices.
7) New bands are allocated to wireless audio devices for hearing assistance.
8) New bands are allocated to Equipment Automatic Identification (AIS).
9) New bands are allocated to Automatic identification equipment development report for search and rescue (AIS-SART).
All RFID products currently approved for and using the band 920-925 MHz are allowed to be continuously imported, distributed and used in Vietnam until the expiration dates of their respective Type Approval certificates. There is no impact on existing Type Approval certificates issued based on current Circular 03. For new applications, Type Approval certificates will be granted based on the Circular 46.

Manufacturers of wireless devices sold in Europe need to be aware of an important date this June. Effective June 13, 2017, the Radio Equipment Directive 2014/53/EU (AKA the “RED”) becomes mandatory. Products placed on the EU market as of that date must comply with the RED; the R&TTE Directive will no longer be valid.
When a manufacturer assesses compliance of radio equipment under the essential requirements of RED Articles 3.2 and 3.3 and harmonized standards are (1) applied only in part, (2) available but not applied, or (3) are not available, then it is mandatory for that manufacturer to use a Notified Body (NB) for review of the “technical documentation” (previously known as the Technical Construction File/TCF under the R&TTE Directive) and issue a “Type Examination Certificate”.
Many standards for the RED are not yet reedy; that is, they are either only available in draft format, not yet harmonized or not yet listed in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU). This fact will force many manufacturers to engage a Notified Body.
Rhein Tech Laboratories can assist you by reviewing your products, existing test reports and Declarations of Conformity, and determining which RED standards are applicable and identifying testing (or additional testing if test reports already exist). We will then work with our Notified Body, American Certification Body (ACB), to review technical documentation and issue Type Examination Certificates if applicable.
To find out more, please contact Rhein Tech Laboratories, Inc. at sales @ rheintech.com or call us at 703.689. 0368.
