DTI Ilocos Sur joins nationwide simultaneous inspection of steel bars sold in hardware stores

The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Ilocos Sur Enforcement Team together with the Philippine Information Agency Ilocos Sur conducted monitoring on the compliance of business establishments selling steel bars. The team checked on the mandatory markings as required under the Philippine National Standards. Steel bars that conform to the required markings are certified, thus, these are marketable and safe to use by consumers. Eleven firms were monitored by the team and these were found to be compliant.
