Disruptive Technologies and New Service Models: The Role of International Standards

Services constitutes the largest sector in the global economy today, accounting for 70% of global GDP, 60% of global employment and 46% of global exports measured in value-added terms. But this sector is not just growing, it is evolving – rapid advances in technology are leading to significant changes in service business models and service provision methods.

Faced with these potentially disruptive changes, International Standards offer businesses, governments and consumers tools to create trust, ensure the quality and safety of services, and facilitate their provision across borders.

The Department of Trade and Industry’s Bureau of Philippine Standards announces that the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) organized a 2-day workshop on disruptive technologies and new service models: the role of international standards. This workshop will focus on how International Standards for services can enable new technologies and business models in the services sector, concentrating on areas such as artificial intelligence and Big Data, e-commerce, cybersecurity, and blockchain. Standardizers, policymakers and industry representatives will come together to discuss the benefits of standards, how they can be effectively implemented, and potential new areas of standardization in the services sector.

To register, and for information, see the workshop website: www.cvent.com/d/96qljv.

New adopted standard to help boost the local sugar industry

The Department of Trade and Industry’s Bureau of Philippine Standards (DTI-BPS) adopted the latest edition of the Philippine National Standard (PNS) / Bureau of Agriculture and Fisheries Standard (BAFS) 82:2018 White sugar – Specification.

In 2010, the standard was revised in order to boost the local sugar industry and ensure that the locally produced and traded sugars meet the current international standards for safety and quality. The PNS/BAFS 82:2018 which cancels and replaces its 2010 version, sets the specification of white sugar for human consumption.

The Sugar Regulatory Administration (SRA) requested the assistance of the BAFS in 2016 to lead the revision of said standard and to update the laboratory procedures for the analysis of sugar. A Technical Working Group (TWG) that led the revision of the standard was created through Special Order No. 239 Series of 2017 with representations from the Department of Agriculture (DA), namely BAFS and SRA, and members from the private sector.
