DTI approves the creation of Philippines’ IEC committee

The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) has approved the creation of the International Electrotechnical Commission - National Committee of the Philippines (IEC-NCP) to guide, set strategic direction, and manage all IEC-related activities throughout the country.

Trade Secretary Ramon M. Lopez signed the Department Administrative Order (DAO) 16-02 Series of 2016 creating the IEC-NCP and ensuring proper Philippine government and private sector representations in the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), and active participation in the IEC International Standards (IS) development programs that are of interest to the Philippines.

The DTI- Bureau of Philippine Standards (DTI-BPS) Officer-in-Charge Atty. Marimel D. Porciuncula underscores that, “As the National Standards Body (NSB), the Philippines through the DTI-BPS should maintain its membership and that is should be appropriately represented in the IEC. International Standards on electrotechnology encourage economic growth and ensure that electric and electronic products are safe and efficient. Thus, it is imperative that Philippine National Standards (PNS) are aligned to IEC International Standards.” The Philippines has held full member status in the IEC since 1997.
