DTI adopts international standards for electrical wiring

THE Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) said it recently adopted three international standards for electrical wiring which it said promote safer use of such products.

 In a statement on Tuesday, the DTI said the Bureau of Philippine Standards (BPS) recently adopted Philippine National Standards (PNS) UL 248-1:2021 — Low-Voltage Fuses — Part 1: General Requirements, PNS UL 248-6:2021 — Low-Voltage Fuses — Part 6: Class H Non-Renewable Fuses, and PNS UL 67:2021 —Panelboards.

 “Following the collaboration and licensing agreement between the DTI-BPS and the UL Standards and Engagement (ULSE) in November 2020, the DTI-BPS has recently adopted and promulgated three international standards on electrical wiring devices as PNS,” the DTI said.

 “The standards were the result of the collaboration of experts, both from the BPS/Technical Committee (TC) 10 and ULSE, on electrical wiring devices,” it added.

BPS Director Neil P. Catajay said the standards create common guidelines for electrical wiring and associated work practices which improve safety. — Revin Mikhael D. Ochave
