To ensure that only safe, quality and certified products are sold in the market, the Department of Trade and Industry’s- Bureau of Philippine Standards (DTI-BPS) has cancelled the Philippine Standard (PS) licenses of manufacturing companies for failing to renew their license to use the PS mark on their products.
DTI-BPS Director-in-Charge Atty. Ann Claire C. Cabochan reports, “The DTI-BPS immediately cancelled 152 PS licenses after a careful review of its records and after proper notification to the companies involved.”
Pursuant to Republic Act (R.A.) No. 4109 or the Standards Law, the DTI-BPS implements the PS Certification Mark Scheme based on the Department Administrative Order (DAO) No. 4:2008 or the New Rules and Regulations Concerning the PS Quality and/or Safety Certification Mark Scheme of the BPS.
