DTI reiterates call for comments on Final Drafts of ISO 9001 and ISO 14001

The Department of Trade and Industry’s Bureau of Philippine Standards (DTI-BPS), as the National Standards Body of the Philippines and member to the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO), reiterates to the general public that the Management system standard ISO 9001 and the Environment management system standard ISO 14001, have reached the final stage of the revision process.

ISO announced that its members have to form their national positions and submit their votes before the 02 September 2015 deadline for the Final Draft International Standard (FDIS) of ISO 14001; and before the 09 September 2015 deadline for the FDIS of ISO 9001.


DTI eases doing business in issuance of ICC Certificates

1. The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) issues the Department Administrative Order (DAO) No. 15-01, Series of 2015 entitled, “Measures to Facilitate the Issuance of the Import Commodity Clearance (ICC)”.

2. “There are significant increases on the number of ICC applications and number of test reports received and evaluated by the Bureau of Philippine Standards (BPS). To expedite the process, I directed the BPS to adopt and implement stop-gap measures to facilitate ease in doing business which resulted to the issuance of DAO No. 15-01, S.2015. With the new DAO, the processing time for ICC applications will be streamlined to up to only three (3) working days compared to the previous processing time of five (5) – 7 days. This further enhances DTI’s performance in ensuring ease in doing business without compromising product safety,” says DTI Secretary Gregory L. Domingo.

3. The products in the BPS List of Products under Mandatory Certification that are life-threatening were retained to facilitate the issuance of ICC, while the rest of the products in the current list are now classified as Products under Mandatory Labeling.

4. According to DAO 05:2008, the validity of a Test Report (TR) shall be observed and accepted. Thus, the TRs of the following products shall have a one (1)- year validity from the date of issuance, provided that the imported products were manufactured by the same company, with the same type and model:
5. Applications with no valid test report/s shall be issued with the ICC certificate, however, the inspection, inventory, sampling and product test procedures shall be conducted prior to the release of ICC stickers.
