DTI-BPS releases List of Recognized Testing Laboratories & Qualified Auditors

The Department of Trade and Industry - Bureau of Philippine Standards (DTI-BPS) issues its lists of Recognized Testing Laboratories and Qualified Quality Management Systems (QMS) and Product Auditors for the implementation of the DTI-BPS Product Certification Scheme (PCS).

Under the DTI-BPS Product Certification Scheme (PCS), certain critical products are required by the DTI-BPS to be compliant with their corresponding Philippine National Standard (PNS), before they can be distributed in the market. This is to ensure the products’ quality and/or safety when used by the consumers.

The Bureau implements the scheme by requiring the Import Commodity Clearance (ICC) certification to importers and the Philippine Standard (PS) License to local manufacturers. Importers are required to have their product samples tested by DTI-BPS Recognized Testing Laboratories and must pass the technical testing as per requirements of a specific Philippine National Standard (PNS) to be granted ICC certification. Local manufacturers, on the other hand, are assessed by DTI-BPS Qualified QMS and Product Auditors and must pass the requirements of Department Administrative Order (DAO) 04, Series of 2008, in order to be granted PS License.

As of 17 December 2018, 29 Testing Laboratories have been recognized by the DTI-BPS, seven (7) of which are located outside of the Philippines. Enumerated below are the Recognized Testing Laboratories:
