The Ministry of Industry and Trade of Vietnam has just warned about ensuring the quality of export masks, avoiding affecting the image of Vietnam's exports.
VIETNAM, August 2, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Vietnamese deal in Sweden recently reported that it had received information from a Danish company about some Vietnamese companies using CE (certificate required by the EU market) issued by organizations. are not recognized by the EU to export medical equipment and supplies to the EU.
There are signs of uncontrolled quality
Last time, face masks and preventive protection products had a sharp increase in export turnover. This is a commodity that helps many business units can diversify products, boosting exports in the context of the COVID-19 epidemic causing much damage.
According to data from the General Department of Customs, in May, the whole country had more than 150 enterprises (enterprises) participating in exporting medical masks. Correspondingly, the number of medical masks has been exported to 181.54 million units. Before that, from the beginning of the year until the end of April, the country had exported more than 139 million medical masks of all kinds.
It can be seen that, after the Government issued Resolution No. 60 / NQ-CP, abolishing the regulation of applying the export licensing regime for medical masks at the end of April, immediately in May, the number of Export of medical masks has increased sharply, accounting for more than half of the turnover since the beginning of the year.
Notably, according to the Ministry of Industry and Trade, previously Vietnamese enterprises had to import antibacterial cloth or chemicals to produce the antibacterial fabric. But now, some enterprises, such as Nam Dinh Silk Weaving Company, have been able to produce antibacterial fabric entirely from domestic biological materials.
However, the Ministry of Industry and Trade is concerned that the sudden increase in demand has caused the export market of these products to grow hot and show signs of uncontrolled quality. This creates a risk of affecting the image of Vietnam's exports.
Mr. Tran Thanh Hai, Deputy Director of Import and Export Department of the Ministry of Industry and Trade, emphasized: “Recently, the number of companies involved in the production and export of masks and protective gear for epidemics has increased rapidly. In particular, according to the FDA certification units (certificates required by the US market) and CE, the process to apply for these certificates takes from weeks to months. In this short time, many businesses get those certificates and find that is not suitable. ”
Mr. Hai added, in the context of complicated movements of the COVID-19 epidemic in markets such as the US and the EU … they could ease import conditions for these epidemic prevention items. However, once the epidemic is more controlled, these markets will certainly increase its control again. "If Vietnam's goods do not meet the standards they have set, the possibility of Vietnamese goods being blocked is very high," – Hai warned.
Facing the above situation, Deputy Director of the Import and Export Department Tran Thanh Hai recommends that companies exporting mask and personal protective equipment need to understand thoroughly the units with functions of consultancy, testing, testing and certification of standards, conformity assessment, especially when businesses want to issue CE certification for export to the EU market and FDA certification for export to the US market.
“Markets in developed countries often require high quality and safety requirements for users. Therefore, businesses learn about these standards to meet, apply for appropriate certificates to facilitate export activities "- a representative of the Ministry of Industry and Trade said.
According to the research, the number of units with the function of testing, testing, and certifying export certificates to the EU and US in Vietnam is not much, only about 10 units. Because these organizations must originate from the EU or from the US, set up representative offices in Vietnam.
