369 new PNS are available at DTI

Three hundred sixty-nine new Philippine National Standards (PNS) are now ready and available at the Department of Trade and Industry’s Bureau of Philippine Standards’ (DTI-BPS) Standards Data Center (SDC), for purchase and for use.

The DTI-BPS, as the National Standards Body of the Philippines, has developed and adopted 369 new PNS on company organization and management, wind turbine energy systems, electromagnetic compatibility, logistics, jewelry, footwear, electric road vehicles, gas cylinders, construction materials, milk and processed milk products, iron and steel castings, ecolabelling, animal and vegetable fats and oils, petroleum products, non-destructive testing, woodworking machines, agricultural products, electrical engineering, adhesives and adhesive products, examination of water for chemical substances, industrial process measurement and control, harvesting equipment, general methods of tests and analysis for food products, glass in building, furniture, iron and steel pipes, metals, textiles, packaging materials, and rubber and rubber products.

The PNS are documents established by consensus through technical committees and approved by the DTI-BPS. All PNS undergo a series of deliberations including a circulation to all sectors concerned for their technical views and comments. Comments were received during the circulation stage and were consolidated, processed, and taken into consideration by the Bureau of Philippine Standards prior to approval as PNS.

DTI-BPS Director James E. Empeño underscores, “The DTI-BPS develops the PNS to ensure safety, quality and functionality of the products and systems, and, for the protection of the consumer’s life, health, property, and, the environment”.

The DTI-BPS maintains 39 Technical Committees and 13 Working Groups/Sub-Committees for the development and adoption of PNS in cooperation with other government offices and the sectors of the academe, industry, test institutions, professional associations, and, consumers.

Around 300 experts on products and services provide volunteer work to develop the country’s PNS. At present, there are 10,535 standards developed, of which 8,373 standards were aligned to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).

DTI-Consumer Protection Group (CPG) Undersecretary Ruth B. Castelo emphasizes, “These standards for products and services uphold high standards for quality, safety, interoperability and efficiency. All these are being developed and adopted for the safety and well-being of the consumers as well as to boost friendly and healthy trade among businesses.”

The DTI-BPS is the National Standards Body of the Philippines. It is the Philippines’ member to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).

A standard is a document that provides requirements, specifications, guidelines, or characteristics that can be used consistently to ensure that materials, products, processes and services are fit for their purpose.

The PNS are available for purchase at the DTI-BPS’ SDC, located at the DTI Main Office, 3F Trade and Industry Building, 361 Sen. Gil Puyat Avenue, Makati City.
