Search Goods Measures and Special Requirements


A measure is a specific import or export requirement that applies to a commodity or to certain types of products. Typically, a measure requires permits or licenses to be obtained from the relevant government agencies prior to importing or exporting the goods. Where a measure applies to a specific commodity it will be listed in so far as is possible and reasonable.

For most measures, the Vietnam Trade Information Portal (VTIP) provides a corresponding procedure; a step-by-step guide on how to satisfy a measure's legal requirements – see the section “Procedures” below for more details.


Here you will find information on Vietnam’s own standards that businesses and traders operating in Vietnam can choose to apply to the products they deal in.

Typical standards include requirements to report or measure goods in kgs or tons,  etc. or for goods to be rated in Volts, Amps etc.

You can see the products to which standards apply and the relevant legal documents by searching for ‘National Standards’ below.
