For better quality: Wes Gatchalian sees promise in testing steel, tiles
Valenzuela Rep. Wes Gatchalian supports the Department of Trade and Industry’s (DTI) push to ensure only quality products are sold in the country.
Gatchalian on Wednesday, July 21, attended the inauguration of the Bureau of Philippine Standards’ Steel and Ceramic Tiles Testing Laboratory.
The laboratory, Gatchalian said, is capable of testing the products of 81 steel and 131 tile manufacturers. It can only test 59 other products.
The lawmaker said he’s confident that more products could be tested by the laboratory in the future.
“Posible ito sa tulong ng sapat na pondo para sa karagdagang machines at manpower, upang lalong maprotektahan ang ating mga konsyumer laban sa mga substandard na produkto,” Gatchalian said in a Facebook post.
