The Ministry of Construction notes that enterprises may select foreign standards to apply to construction works in Vietnam. However, it is required to ensure the compliance with the system of national technical regulations of Vietnam.

Accordingly, in case NFPA 5000 Standard 2021 Edition of the US National Fire Protection Association has regulations higher than those in the National Technical Regulation on Fire Safety of Buildings and Constructions of Vietnam (QCVN 06:2021/BXD), the former may be used for construction works in Vietnam.

However, if the aforesaid NFPA 5000 Standard has regulations lower than those in QCVN 06:2021/BXD, it is required to apply according to 06:2021/BXD.
