Philippines Department of Trade and Industry has suspended the Philippine Standard licenses of six steel manufacturers in 2019 for failing the independent testing commissioned by the DTI-Bureau of Philippine Standards from the Metals Industry Research and Development Center. These steel manufacturers include Maxima Steel Mills Corp, Henro Steel Corp, Steel Asia Manufacturing Corp Meycauayan Bulacan Plant, Cathay Metal Corp, Somico Steel Mill Corporation and Sagarthama Steel Trading Corporation.

The suspension order resulted from unannounced surveillance audits conducted by the BPS in 2019 on various steel manufacturing plants in the country. Samples culled from these audits that were subjected to testing by the MIRDC proved that these six steel manufacturers were not compliant with the standards indicated in Philippine National Standard 49, Series of 2002. Until these steel manufacturers comply with the PNS, their PS licenses will remain suspended.

The DTI issued this statement to contradict a statement made by a product standards and quality group that government has failed to take action against retailers and manufacturers of substandard steel.
