DTI sets Flat Glass Product Specification

The Bureau of Public Standards (BPS) of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) has established PNS 193:2005 flat-glass specification to ensure the safety of the consuming public, considering that flat glass is a major material for construction.

DTI Provincial Director Rolando Acuña said the specification has been declared mandatory as it also aimed to protect the consumers from proliferation of substandard flat-glass products in the market.

Acuña said the new standards would ensure consumers that flat-glass products, such as mirrors, doors, windows and tables, commonly used at home or in the office are reliable to avoid untoward incident.

He said that local manufacturers shall be obliged to secure Public Standard (PS) Certification Mark license for flat-glass cover by PNS 193:2005 subject to the conditions set by DTI in the implementing Guidelines for the Issuance of PS Certification Mark with the implementation of the new standard.

He said that all importers of flat glass will also be governed by the rules and regulations set by DTI in the implementation of mandatory product certification for flat glass, as stated in the Operations Manual for the Issuance of Import Commodity Clearance for Imported Flat Glass covered by PNS 193:2005 specification.
