They have not had to get the certificate since March 9 as before.

Formerly, auto import firms sent a document to the Prime Minister saying there was no legal basic to maintain the illegitimate regulation because auto import is not subject to the conditional list of the 2014 investment law.

Auto businesses and associations claimed that many regulations in the circular do not encourage fair competitiveness, break the Competitive Law 2004, do not assist small and medium enterprises and go against Resolution 35 of the Government and other policies on assisting this sector.

They suggested removing the circular to create healthy business environment without discriminating between large and small firms.
