PIA Press Release

DTI-ZDN warns public on uncertified Christmas lights

Zamboanga City (11 November) -- The Department of Trade and Industry- Zamboanga del Norte Provincial Office is reminding the public never to buy uncertified series lights in view of the forthcoming Christmas season and the increasing demand for Christmas lights.

DTI-ZDN Provincial Director, Engr. Noel Bazan, said that the agency has continued intensifying its monitoring activities.

As early as September of this year, the DTI already called the attention of local retailers to refrain from selling certified Christmas lights. The retailers were given a list of certified brands and corresponding suppliers.

In the past week, however, the DTI Enforcement Team has caught at least two business establishments which were selling uncertified series lights. These establishments were issued notices of violations and were formally charged for non-compliance with the Products Standards Law.

The DTI is urging consumers to be vigilant in buying Christmas lights. Engr. Bazan said that consumers and vendors should patronize only Christmas lights with import Commodity Clearance and Philippine Standards stickers.

Engr. Bazan further said that consumers who patronize uncertified products for their cheap costs would run risk of possible damage to their properties and even lives.

There is high tendency that substandard series lights products might cause electrical problems that can lead to fire and other accidents. Consumers should exercise critical awareness on Christmas lights products and should ascertain the safety and quality of these items.

Engr. Bazan also appealed to the public to report unscrupulous traders preying on innocent consumers and buyers. (DTI/ATR-PIA) [top]
