According to Article 1.4 of the Montreal Protocol, with regard to a created product contains substance or mixture of HCFC and HFC, it is not required to apply for the import license.
Accordingly, in case imported machinery contains HCFC and HFC, it is also not required to apply for the import license from the Agency of Foreign Trade (the Ministry of Industry and Trade).
Currently, the issuance of licenses for import/export of HCFC and HFC is carried out via the National Single Window System. However, the Agency of Foreign Trade only considers approving applications for licenses for import of HCFC and HFC on Annex I, IIa, IIb promulgated together with Circular No. 05/2020/TT-BCT .
