TRECE MARTIRES, Cavite, August 9 (PIA) –The Department of Trade and Industry's Fair Trade Enforcement Bureau (DTI-FTEB) is relentless in its campaign to ensure compliance of business establishments of Fair Trade Laws.


About 70 establishments in major cities in Cavite have been recently monitored by four composite teams from the Product Standards Monitoring and Enforcement Division. 


About 15 Notices of Violations (NOVs) with 41 violations on accreditation and hardware combined were served by the DTI-FTEB team..


The firms that were found operating without accreditation certificates can be penalized with an imposable fine of up to P5,000 while violations on no proper labelling as to the Philippine National Standard (PNS) requirements and required Philippine Standard (PS) or Import Commodity Clearance (ICC) mark, will be penalized under the DAO 2:2007 in relation to RA 4109 with a corresponding penalty of P 17,500 per type of product.


This monitoring activity was a part of the initiatives that DTI-FTEB has undertaken in line with the pre-launching of its project Execution Team (ET), a DTI flagship project to intensify the implementation of fair trade laws nationwide to further safeguard the life, safety and health of the consuming public.
