DTI destroys P69,000 worth of violative products in Albay

by MS Arguelles

Legazpi City (4 November) -- The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) on Wednesday, October 29, destroyed close to P69,000 worth of uncertified products and defective weighing scales confiscated by the agency from various commercial establishments operating in the province of Albay.

DTI Albay provincial director Rodrigo Aguilar said the confiscated products do not bear either the Product Standard (PS) or the Import Commodity Clearance (ICC) markings issued by the agency to products sold in the market.

Aguilar said the uncertified products confiscated included among others steel bars, G.I. wires, Christmas lights, and lighters which were destroyed by means of a road roller at the Landco Business Center here.

The eight establishments found selling uncertified products and with defective weighing scales were charged and fined for violating the product standard act, Aguilar said.

The DTI determined to protect consumers from sub-standard products sold in the market, has intensified its consumer protection drive by checking the products on sale by various establishments indeed conform to the product standard laid down by the agency.

The destruction of the uncertified products and defective weighing scale highlighted the observance of Consumer Welfare Month during October.

The observance of consumerism month aims to educate and encourage the various sectors of the community to join hands in curtailing the proliferation of fake and substandard products with the conduct of Consumerism Seminars and Advocacy Caravan on Product Standards. (PIA Albay) [top]
