For exports, to ensure the smoothness of transportation and customs procedures, Enterprise should have sufficient shipping mark.

Indian electronics importers must comply with rather a stringent marking and labeling requirements. Indian importers failing to comply may have their cargo seized by customs authorities, and relabeling exporting cartons and product packages is only possible if such a request is granted. If not, the importer may find themselves in a world of trouble. So, let’s look into these labeling requirements. Below follows a list of items that you must include:
- Product name and description
- Net weight
- Date of Manufacture
- Your address
- Maximum retail price (MRT), including taxes
- Batch ID
- Month and year the product was imported

- Certain types of products must be labeled with the sizes and Country of Origin (e.g. Made in China) on the items themselves.
IT hardware companies/ manufacturers are required to label their products with a certification tag before being allowed to import in India. Earlier, labeling requirements had allowed manufacturers to simply label their products through stickers. According to the new requirements, some electronic goods may require the Vietnam manufacturers to “screen print, emboss or engrave” the certification statement onto the product and printed on the packaging material.
Certificate of origin Electronics
The Vietnamese government does not require exporter to make Vietnam origin for exports. However, in many cases, buyers will require the exporter to provide a Certificate of Origin in Vietnam. For customers in countries that have signed free trade agreements with Vietnam, they may require Certificates of Origin in the form so that buyers can enjoy special preferential import tax.
