The BPS operates product certification schemes to ensure quality and safety of products produced locally and those imported into the country. Under the BPS Philippine Standard (PS) Certification Scheme, a manufacturer obtains a license to use the Philippine Standard (PS) Quality and Safety Marks for its capability to consistently manufacture products in accordance with a specific Philippine National Standard (PNS) or an internationally accepted foreign standard. Conformity to standard is determined on the basis of satisfactory results of the assessment of the quality management system of the manufacturer’s production and conformance of product to requirements of specific standard.
For imported products, the BPS runs the Import Commodity Clearance (ICC) certification scheme. Under the scheme, ICCs are issued to importers whose shipments have been found to conform to the requirements of the relevant Philippine National Standards or acceptable international or foreign standards.
