Newest regulations on criteria for assessment and classification of seaports of Vietnam
Đức Dũng

On July 28, 2021, the Government of Vietnam issued Decree No. 76/2021/ND-CP prescribing criteria for classification of seaports.

According to guidance in this Decree, seaports are assessed and classified into 04 types:

- Special seaports: total score is greater than 90 points;

- Class-I seaports: total score is from greater than 70 points to 90 points;

- Class-II seaports: total score is from 50 points to 70 points;

- Class-III seaports: total score is less than 50 points;

 2 main bases for assessment and classification of seaports:

(1) The influence area of seaports

Assessment based on the master plan for development of seaports that is approved by the competent state authority.

For example: A seaport which can serve the socio-economic development of the whole country or inter-region will be rated higher than a seaport that can only serve the socio-economic development of the locality. 

(2) The size of seaports

Assessment based on the statistics of the average throughput of cargos in the last 3 years of the Vietnam Maritime Administration and the data on the tonnages of ships received at seaports.

Classification of seaports for the purposes of seaport planning or seaport plan revision must be based on data on goods, expected tonnage of ship in each planning period and other criteria specified in this Decree.

Decree No. 76/2021/ND-CP takes effect from September 10, 2021.
