The Ministry of Industry and Trade is setting regulations on labeling products and items produced in Vietnam, apart from building criteria for the kinds of products that can bear “Made in Vietnam” labels following the recent origin fraud cases, such as Khaisilk and Asanzo, the local media reported.

A representative of the ministry said that the ministry is speeding up work and steps to introduce a circular stipulating requirements for product labeling in detail.

Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Tran Quoc Khanh told VnExpress that the ministry is discussing these regulations, noting that it will be cautious and ask for feedback from residents, enterprises and officials, as well as assess the effects of the criteria.

The draft circular specifies that goods meeting the origin criteria regulated in Decree 31 and some new regulations can bear “Made in Vietnam” labels. Decree 31 only governs certificates of origin for imported and exported products, but it fails to specify regulations for origin labels for products circulating on the local market.

When clear regulations on product labels are put in place, State management agencies will easily be able to determine which firms are violating label regulations or are involved in fraudulent practices related to origin labels.

The most popular method for defining the origin of products is to identify the regional value content of products, according to the ministry.

Besides this, the ministry has also presented various methods to determine the origin of products, including using the HS Code and applying chemical reactions. - SGT -
