SAN JOSE DE BUENAVISTA, Antique – The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Antique provincial office is urging consumers to patronize mandatory products stamped with either the Philippine Standard (PS) or Import Commodity Clearance (ICC) mark for their safety.

The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) is currently holding a Consumer Welfare Mandatory Products Quality and Safety Information Showcase at the Robinsons Mall in San Jose de Buenavista to raise public awareness, particularly on mandatory products.

“We are holding a three-day mandatory products display of information and actual samples for consumers to be familiarized,” Glen Fernando, Trade and Industry Development Specialist of DTI Antique, said on Thursday.

The showcase that will run until Oct. 23, 2021 displays products such as building and construction materials, electrical and electronics, and chemical and consumer products that passed the testing of the Bureau of Philippine Standards (BPS) for product safety and quality.

Fernando said mandatory products that are locally manufactured bear the PS mark while imported ones have an ICC mark.

Meanwhile, Fernando said these products are also sold by stores that are DTI Bagwis Awardees in the province, which is a part of the criteria for them to get the award.

Seven establishments were conferred the 2020 Bagwis Awardees while additional four hardware stores are applying for the award this year.

The Bagwis Award is given to stores that are compliant with the Fair Trade Laws and uphold the rights and privileges of their consumers. (PNA)
