DTI supports the Philippines’ ratification of the Minamata Convention on Mercury

The Department of Trade and Industry’s Bureau of Philippine Standards (DTI-BPS) supports the ratification of the Minamata Convention on Mercury since it will instill protection to health and the environment. In consonance with the existing policy in RA 7394, or the Consumer Act of the Philippines, Chapter 1 of the Consumer Product Quality and Safety, which provides that the State shall protect the interests of the consumers, promote their general welfare and establish standards of conduct for business and industry, and, implement measures to achieve the protection against hazards to health and safety.

In support to the ratification, the DENR-EMB facilitates and coordinates the concurrence of other concerned Executive Departments including the Department of Trade and Industry. The DTI-BPS considering its mandate to develop standards (PNS), is primarily involved in the activities of the ratification. The DTI-BPS focuses its development on the PNS on the disclosure of mercury in specific products that will assist in minimizing if not, preventing the use of mercury in products and processes. The DTI-BPS works closely with the DENR in strengthening institutions and in improving national capacities to legislate mercury with a life cycle approach, while taking into consideration and utilizing the PNS developed.

DTI approves standard on dimensions for PUV Class 2 and Class 3 as PNS

The DTI’s Bureau of Philippine Standards (BPS), in support of the PUV Modernization program of the Department of Transportation (DOTr), approves the draft standard on dimensions for Public Utility Vehicles Class 2 and Class 3 as a Philippine National Standard (PNS).

The Philippine National Standard (PNS) 2126:2017 Public Utility Vehicles Class 2 and Class 3 – Dimensions was prepared by the Working Group on Public Utility Vehicle (PUV) Modernization (WG 2). It has been approved as PNS by the Department of Trade and Industry’s Bureau of Philippine Standards (DTI-BPS) upon the recommendation of the Technical Committee on Road Vehicles, BPS/TC 44.

This standard classifies the PUV into four (4) classes based on the UNECE Consolidated Resolution on the Construction of Vehicles – Classification of power-driven vehicles and trailers:

•Class 1 – a vehicle which can carry 9 to 22 passengers, all seated passengers

•Class 2 – a vehicle which can carry more than 22 passengers, seated with standing passengers

•Class 3 – a vehicle which can carry more than 22 passengers, all seated passengers

•Class 4 – a vehicle which can carry more than 22 passengers, all seated passengers with provisions for cargo

The PNS 2126:2017 specifies requirements and provides guidance on the dimensional limits for Public Utility Vehicle (PUV) under the Class I and III of “M2” United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) category – vehicles used for the carriage of passengers, comprising more than eight (8) seats in addition to the driver’s seat, and having a maximum mass not exceeding five (5) tons. Also, included in the dimensional limits are the overall height, width and length, wheelbase and front and rear overhang, cabin, hand rails, seat and seat lay out, field of vision, step board, service door and emergency exit.
