Deputy Prime Minister Tran Hong Ha has tasked the Ministry of Construction (MoC) with studying, reviewing, and amending the criteria on fire safety for buildings and constructions to correspond with the recent technological advances without wasting social capital.

This was one of the points included in the announcement of DPM Tran Hong Ha's conclusion at the conference to address obstacles associated with fire prevention and defence regulations in construction and investment activities.
According to experts, many of Vietnam's new fire prevention regulations exceed those of developed nations and do not account for their applicability. Several initiatives under the previous plan to assure compliance with Decree No.79/2014/ND-CP are now being evaluated and must comply with the new regulations issued in Decree No.136/2020/ND-CP.
Numerous recently issued standards and regulations fail to differentiate project scope, construction properties, use requirements, and unlicensed fireproof materials on the Vietnamese market. Due to their inability to meet the new law, a variety of firms, production facilities, and commercial enterprises will be forced to close.
According to data from the Science, Technology and Environment Department under the MoC, QCVN No.06:2022/BXD came into effect on January 16. Up to April 20, no new construction projects have been initiated since the regulation's implementation.
The DPM asked the MoC to oversee the drafting of the government's resolution to eradicate obstacles for construction investment activities based on each facility and establishment type.
