New Decree on Chemical Management and System for Chemical Declaration in Vietnam

On January 11, 2018, the National Single Window system for declaration of chemicals to be imported into Vietnam was officially launched. In its first week, this system was used and accessed by several major chemical companies who observed that the system was of very high quality, helping to complete the chemical declaration within a very short time. This extreme improvement comes on the heels of a new decree on chemical management in Vietnam.

Specifically, on October 9, 2017, the Government of Vietnam issued Decree No. 113/2017/ND-CP guiding the implementation of certain articles of the Law on Chemicals of 2007 (“Decree 113”). The new decree came into force on November 25, 2017, replacing Decree No. 108/2008 /ND-CP and Decree No. 26/2011/ND-CP, and addresses some limitations presented during the implementation of the previous decrees. Some of the key changes are detailed below.
