Standards make life easier, healthier and safer

Technological advancement continues to improve the lives of millions of people around the world. Work gets done faster and resources are utilized more efficiently. These innovations are guided by standards that provide the framework needed to ensure constant growth and improvement. These standards form the backbone of technologies that contribute to the overall reliability and effectiveness of goods and services.

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) /International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) define a standard as a document, established by consensus and approved by a recognized body that provides, for common and repeated use, rules, guidelines or characteristics for activities or their results, aimed at the achievement of the optimum degree of order in a given context.

Under the Republic Act No. 4109 also known as the Standardization Law of the Philippines, the Department of Trade and Industry’s Bureau of Philippine Standards (DTI-BPS) supports industries and protects consumers’ welfare through the development and promulgation, implementation and coordination of standardization activities in the Philippines.

The development of these standards are guided by the Directives Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3 issued by BPS on the principles of standardization, the organization and responsibilities of technical committees, the procedures of technical work, and the structure and drafting of Philippine National Standard.  These directives are issued as guides in the development of these standards.
