CEBU CITY – The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) said it has seized sub-standard products from construction materials to household appliances during a crackdown on business establishments in Cebu and Bohil that do not comply with the product standard laws.
DTI Regional Director Asteria Caberte said among those seized items were construction materials, household appliances, electrical and other consumer products that did not bear the Philippine Standard and Import Commodity Clearance marks.
Caberte said the confiscation was the result of intensified enforcement operation against erring establishments in the region that do not comply with the product standard laws. She did not identify the establishments and owners of the seized products. “The DTI encourages our manufacturers, importers, and distributors to sell only those critical products that passed quality and safety tests,” Caberte said.
She said they will continue the campaign against establishments that sell uncertified, inferior or substandard products. (John Rey Saavedra)
