DTI-BPS issues DAO 19-08 National Recognition for Standards Development Organizations (SDOs)

The Department of Trade and Industry – Bureau of Philippine Standards (DTI-BPS) issues the Department Administrative Order (DAO) No. 19-08, Series of 2019 or the National Recognition for Standards Development Organizations (SDOs). DAO 19-08 is for a national recognition of SDOs to have cohesion of all standards development activities and to optimize resources as well as prevent duplication of work in the development of Philippine National Standards (PNS). The DAO 19-08 tasks the DTI-BPS to maintain a repository of PNS developed.

SDOs are organizations that possess the necessary expertise and have the capacity and resources to develop standards. The following are considered SDOs:

  1. Public SDOs – public agencies that are tasked by law – such as the Consumer Act of the Philippines – to develop standards for specific products and services. The public SDOs are:
  1. Department of Health – with respect to food, drugs, cosmetics, devices and substances.
  2. Department of Agriculture – with respect to products related to agriculture
  3. Department of Trade and Industry – with respect to other consumer products not specified above
  4. Department of Energy – for quality of petroleum products, facilities, energy conservation and efficiency standardization works
  1. Private SDOs – private organizations having the necessary expertise and have the capacity and resources to develop standards as recognized under this National Recognition Scheme
  2. Other public agencies that are not tasked by law but possess necessary expertise and have the capacity and resources to develop standards as recognized under this National Recognition Scheme

As mandated by the Republic Act 4109 or the Standards Law, the DTI-BPS facilitates the development of PNS. Furthermore, the Republic Act 7394 or the Consumer Act of the Philippines, gives the mandate to DTI-BPS to develop standards for consumer products, including performance or use-oriented standards, codes of practice and methods of tests.

DTI-BPS develops standards to support electric vehicles

As the price of petroleum products continue to soar to record highs and as more and more people are becoming environment and climate conscious, the need to find alternative sources of fuel and efficient technologies have become breakthrough goals of various government agencies and private institutions alike. And as thousands of Filipinos commute to and from work on a daily basis, issues and concerns to create and adopt programs on road transportation, specifically on cleaner and more efficient transportation has been pushed to mitigate the effects of climate change.

To support the government’s drive to modernize the public transport system, the Department of Trade and Industry’s Bureau of Philippine Standards (DTI-BPS) has released several standards that cater to the emerging market of electric vehicles (EVs).

Through the BPS Technical Committee on Road Vehicles (BPS/TC 44)’s Sub Committee on Electric Road Vehicles (SC 21), standards focused on the ensuring safety and road performance of electric vehicles were developed. The SC 21 under the recommendation of TC 44 released the Philippine National Standard / International Organization for Standardization (PNS ISO) 6469 series of standards under general title electrically propelled road vehicles – Safety Specifications to assure the safety of EVs. These 6469 series of standards include:

  • PNS ISO 6469-1:2012 Electrically propelled road vehicles – Safety Specifications – Part 1: On-board rechargeable energy storage system
  • PNS ISO 6469-2:2012 Electrically propelled road vehicles – Safety Specifications – Part 2: Vehicle operational safety means and protection against failures
  • PNS ISO 6469-3:2012 Electrically road vehicles – Safety Specifications – Part 3: Protection of persons against electric hazards
  • PNS ISO 6469-4:2012 Electrically propelled road vehicles – Safety Specifications – Part 4: Post Crash electrical safety

DTI-BPS adopts International Standard on tissue paper and tissue products

The Department of Trade and Industry’s Bureau of Philippine Standards (DTI-BPS) adopted the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 12625-4:2019 Tissue paper and tissue products – Part 4: Determination of tensile strength, stretch at maximum force and tensile energy absorption, as a Philippine National Standard (PNS).

Published by ISO in 2016, PNS ISO 12625-4:2019 was approved for adoption upon the recommendation of the DTI-BPS Technical Committee on Paper, Board and Pulps (BPS/TC 21). BPS/TC 21 is composed of representatives from the Technical Association of the Pulp and Paper Industry of the Philippines, Department of Science and Technology – Product Research and Development Institute, University of the Philippines Los Baños – College of Forestry and Natural Resources, Department of Budget and Management – Procurement Service, National Association of Consumers, Inc., Trust International Paper Corp., and Jedaric Chemicals Corp.

The PNS ISO 12625-4:2019 specifies the test method for the determination of the tensile strength, stretch at maximum force and tensile energy absorption of tissue paper and tissue products. A test piece of tissue paper or tissue product, of given dimensions, is stretched to break at a constant rate of elongation using a tensile-testing apparatus that measures and records the tensile force as a function of the elongation of the test piece. From the recorded data, the tensile strength, the corresponding stretch at maximum force and the tensile energy absorption can be calculated.
