Beware of fake products - DTI

By Rose B. Palacio

Davao City (5 March) -- Beware of fake products. Fake products are becoming a big industry. Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Davao City Field Office said several people who are buyers of consumer products, are being victimized of fake products.

Deception has been very creative and involves almost all kinds of products, said DTI City Field Office Director Lou Pasawa. Considering that several government agencies are tasked to protect the rights of consumers, the DTI has adopted convergence to achieve its goal of empowering the public.

There must be a partnership with the local government units (LGUs) to be able to reach out to as many people.

Pasawa cited an example on the sale of surplus television adding that if said surplus TV sets did not pass the product standards, these will be banned in the market. Proper certification from the DTI should be issued.

He said that although television is just one of the items being monitored, DTI had stepped up its inspection because these are items prohibited for sale, if it did not pass standard for safety.

There is already an existing coordination with the Bureau of Customs where such cargoes are subject for inspection and issued a certification and corresponding clearances.

Dealers of television sets should follow government rules considering that these units contain some materials harmful to the environment and have to be destroyed (if necessary) as provided by law. (PIA) [top]
