Jul 9, 2019 @ 0:34

Teams from the Department of Trade and Industry conducted a random inspection of some hardware stores and construction establishments in Nueva Ecija last weekend to protect consumers from fraud.

DTI-Nueva Ecija consumer affairs division head Bobby Faronilo said they inspected three hardware stores in San Jose City and Talavera and Zaragoza towns.

“From time to time, the DTI is also conducting consumer education,” Faronilo said, noting the DTI has adopted a two-pronged approach in ensuring fair trade (

During the inspection, the DTI team checked samples of steel bars and other construction materials.

“We are ready to penalize and file charges against erring establishments,” he said.

Under the law, mandatory products, such as steel bars and cement products that did not pass the product certification process of the Bureau of Philippine Standards, are not to be distributed or sold in the Philippine market.

The DTI may also impose fines on the distribution and selling of construction materials not complying with Philippine standards.

Also, the DTI may recommend closure of establishments selling mandatory products without Philippine Standards license for locally manufactured products or Import Commodity Clearance for imported products.
