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.
