Philcement asserts regulatory compliance

Philcement, a member of the PHINMA Group, on Wednesday asserted its full compliance to the regulation of the Department of Trade and Industry, especially on the guidelines cited in Department Administrative Order 17-06 ,or the mandatory certification of cement plants.

The company said in a statement it was granted the required certifications by the DTI Philippine Standard Quality Certification Mark in December 2019.

“Upon the conduct of its own independent investigation on this issue raised by CeMap [Cement Manufacturers Association of the Philippines], the DTI granted a favorable decision to Philcement last April 6, 2020, affirming that the markings and labels of Philcement are in compliance with the guidance and instruction of the Bureau of Philippine Standards, and the same standards have been applied to cement terminals operated by CeMap members,” it said in the statement.

“As the complainant on the DTI case, CeMap, represented by its executive director Cirilo Pestaño, should have knowledge of the DTI’s resolution of this issue in favor of Philcement,” the company said.
