Vietnam has introduced a new extended producer responsibility regime that places responsibility on producers and importers to manage waste associated with the full life-cycle of their products. EPR in Vietnam is implemented via Decree No. 08/2022/ND-CP implementing some Articles in the Law on Environmental Protection, and Circular No. 02/2022/TT-BTNMT on the Detailed Implementation of some Articles in the Law on Environmental Protection.

The Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MONRE) released a draft decree implementing Law No. 72/2020/QH14 on Environmental Protection, which introduces Extended Producer Responsibility. Alongside the introduction of a framework for the recycling of packaging waste, the Draft Decree also proposes a mandatory recycling framework for products.
