Confiscated substandard products from China to be destroyed

by Prix D Banzon

Davao City (2 October) -- Confiscated China-made electrical products that did not pass the standards will be destroyed anytime this week after consultation with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) on how to undertake the disposition of the products.

Paciente Cubillas, senior trade industry development specialist of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI XI) said they were able to confiscate products after they had strengthened their monitoring.

He said instead of just checking whether the product carries the import clearance certificate (ICC) mark, the DTI also has to check the ICC document whether it matches with the mark on the product they are selling.

Right now he said they have three cases that violated the law.

Most of the electrical products are fluorescent tubes, outlets and others even as he said that they had intensified their campaign on substandard Christmas lights since August.

Cubillas said they warned storeowners to comply and if found violating will be slapped with fine.

He said this is part of the Department's mandated program on the Enforcement of the Fare Trade Law.

Under the law he said the label of the product has to be checked that must be carried by all electrical products such as electric fan, electric iron, refrigerator.

The minimum fine is P17, 500 but the penalty varies depending on the business' capital and the circumstances surrounding it. (PIA XI) [top]
