Accreditation proposed for auto repair shops, freight forwarder, DTI says

AUTO REPAIR shops and freight forwarders may be required to seek accreditation as a consumer protection measure, the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) said.

The DTI held an online hearing last week to consider the proposal, which contemplates the issuance of “seal of approval” signage on the premises of such businesses.

In a statement Tuesday, the DTI said the signage could feature a government logo and a quick response code.

The potential rule would apply to freight forwarding services and motor vehicle repair and services.

The rule could apply to businesses servicing heavy equipment, electrical, air-conditioning and refrigeration equipment, medical and dental equipment, other consumer mechanical and industrial equipment, and engines, as well as engineering services businesses.

One segment that could be required to seek accreditation is businesses servicing consumer products, as defined by the Consumer Act of the Philippines.

DTI Fair Trade Enforcement Bureau Director Ronnel O. Abrenica said that the signage, also known as a “plate of recognition,” can be taken by consumers as a sign that the service provider underwent government accreditation.

“This will also help business establishments in promoting fair and quality service to consumers while building consumer confidence in the area,” Undersecretary Ruth B. Castelo said. — Jenina P. Ibañez
