HCMC - Vietnam-made Covid-19 test kits have been certified as meeting European standards by the United Kingdom’s Department of Health and Social Care, reported the Government news website. 

Phan Quoc Viet, general director of Viet A Technologies JSC, said that the UK department has issued a CE certificate and a certificate of free sale for the test kits, which are being manufactured by the firm in collaboration with the Vietnam Military Medical Academy.

Even though the UK left the European Union on January 31, the European Pharmaceutical Law is still being applied by Britain until December 31. Under EU regulations, if any EU member grants a CE to any product, that product can be sold in Europe. 

As such, the Covid-19 test kits manufactured in Vietnam can be sold in all EU member countries, including Britain. Following the kits’ certification by the UK, some partners have registered to buy and exclusively distribute them to Britain, India, Mexico, the United States and some countries in Europe. 

Earlier in March, as many as 20 countries made deals to purchase Vietnam’s Covid-19 test kits. In the initial stage, Viet A Company will export the product to Iran, Finland, Malaysia and Ukraine.

Iran has registered to buy 4,000 test kits, while Ukraine has placed an order of 300 test kits. Viet A Company can turn out 10,000 test kits per day. It can triple production to meet the demand from the local market and for export or international support.
