The information was released by Nguyen Minh Tuan, director of the Medical Equipment and Construction Department.

On May 15 last year, the Government promulgated Decree 36/2016/NĐ-CP about managing medical equipment. Under it, equipment will be classified into four categories, A, B, C, D based on its level of risk and managed by circulation numbers. Medical equipment sort A is the least dangerous, while sort D is the most dangerous.

The ministry set up guidance documents and software to receive information about the circulation of medical equipment.

However, several difficulties occurred. One was that the ministry could not connect online administrative services about medical equipment circulation with the national portal  that had been agreed with the General Department of Customs.

Besides, on October 11, the ministry received a letter from the European Chamber of Commerce in Viet Nam saying that it could not complete the work intime because the number of medical equipment documents were too many.

The ministry then asked the Government for permission to reduce the deadline for the work.
