PIA Press Release

DTI Negros Occidental monitors school supplies

Negros Occidental (24 May) -- The Department of Trade and Industry, this province, is conducting a special monitoring on the prices of school supplies.

The special monitoring was started two weeks ago by the DTI based on the Suggested Retail Price of the school supplies.

DTI Negros Occidental Information Officer Floressa May Castro reiterated that establishments have the responsibility to comply with the SRP set by DTI.

"They can go lower than the SRP or they can follow it but they should not go beyond the SRP," Castro told PIA.

DTI also said that SRPs do not apply to all products pertaining to school supplies and other school needs.

SRP on products issued as of May 13 include notebooks for common brands like Advance, Topline, Best Buy, Paperline; pad papers of Easywrite, NBS, Yasaka; pencils with brand names like, Acasia, Standard, Best Buy, Leone, Mongol while for crayons it included brands like Crayola, NBS Basics and Leone Kids.

An 80 leaves writing notebook has SRP from as low as P9.50 depending on the brand while for pencils, SRP can start from P3.25 on certain brands.

DTI urges the public to check on the following on the label: type, size, grammage of paper, brand name or trademark, name and address of manufacturer and where manufactured, also look up for the word "non-toxic" especially for crayons if the product has passed the allowed toxicity level set by the Food and Drug Administration.

For questions and complaints on the quality of the products and prices, one may go to the nearest DTI office in the area or call its DTI Direct at 751-3330 as posted in their website. (PIA/EAD) [top]
