Guaranteed safe home appliances – A Filipino Consumer’s Right

Can you imagine a day without the use of home appliances particularly for Filipinos in the urban areas? The use of these electrical machines has become so common that most of us are dependent on them because they make our lives more comfortable and daily chores easier to do.

These electrical appliances are widely used in homes, schools, offices, and business establishments.  The relevance of their safety and performance is therefore high to ensure that consumers get their money’s worth.

As one of the lead offices in empowering consumers based on the Republic Act (R. A.) 7394, or the Consumer Act of the Philippines, the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) upholds the rights and responsibilities of consumers drawing on the vigilance and involvement of the buying population.

The second among the eight (8) consumer rights is the right to safety, which says that a consumer shall be protected against the marketing of goods or the provision of services that are hazardous to life and health.


DTI reiterates significance of standardization activities during World Standards Day and National Standards Week celebrations

The Department of Trade and Industry – Bureau of Philippine Standards (DTI-BPS), as the National Standards Body, annually celebrated the National Standards Week (NSW) last October 08 to 14, to emphasize the importance of standards and standardization activities in upholding the Filipino consumers' right to safety.

The National Standards Week is in observance of the annual worldwide celebration of the World Standards Day (WSD), every 14th of October. The BPS adopts the 45th WSD theme, “Standards level the playing field”, for the 40th NSW celebration.

Through this theme, the BPS reiterates the vital role of standards in specifying the minimum requirements of product or service performance and safety, which ensures that all stakeholders – government, business, academe, retail, and, consumer – are directed with uniform conditions and requisites in the manufacture, labeling, packaging and selling of their products and services.


BOC, DTI Warn Against Proliferation of Uncertified Tiles, Plywood

In violation of Customs rules, more than half of ceramic tiles and plywood imported into the Philippines in July 2014 may have been imported and released from Customs without the required clearances from the Bureau of Philippine Standards (BPS) of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI). Further investigations are ongoing to establish the precise amounts, but there is sufficient evidence that the amounts already released are substantial.

Thus, the Bureau of Customs and Bureau of Philippine Standards warn the public to be vigilant when buying ceramic tiles and plywood. The consumer should look for the Philippine Standard (PS) Quality or Safety Certification Mark License/s; or Import Commodity Clearance/s (ICC) issued to manufacturers or importers, respectively. They should also ensure that the packaging or product has an authentic PS Mark or ICC sticker affixed on it.
