ICC stickers for used helmets

    In the Philippines, the Department of Trade and Industry issues ICC stickers to manufacturers and importers to certify that their products passed the department's quality and safety standards before releasing them to the market.  ICC stands for Import Commodity Clearance.  However, for some reason, they are asking motorcycle riders to bring their helmet/s to DTI offices for inspection. If the helmet passed, then the DTI representative will put ICC sticker on it, if not, the rider needs to replacehis / her helmet.  Although I cannot discount the fact that the department is just ensuring the rider's safety, I believe, this should've been done long before the helmet was sent out to market for selling.  By January of next year, they will start issuing violation ticket to those riders wearing helmet with no ICC sticker.  They should concentrate in making sure that the products we are importing are in good quality rather than inspecting it after people already bought them.

    As a reminder to Filipinos who are getting an ICC sticker, make sure to fill-out the DTI application form (2 copies), bring photocopy of a government issued ID and motorcycle registration.  Of course, don't forget your helmet smile
