Tuesday 1st October 1996

Vietnam is one of the newly developing countries in South East Asia, with a great potential for economic development. In recent years, the Vietnamese government set up a series of regulations and standards for the commissioning and inspection of lift systems, as well as safety requirements for installation and operation. This paper will highlight the major differences between British Standards and Vietnamese Standards. Minor discrepancies will be identified for technical discussion, with extracts (in English) from the Vietnamese regulations presented to clarify the different regulations.
