The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) has warned contractors and construction firms against personalities posing as officials and employees or acting on behalf of the Philippine Contractors Accreditation Board (PCAB).

Contractors and construction firms are cautioned against Board Resolution No. 434, Series of 2017 purporting to be from PCAB with the subject matter: “Completion of Five-Days Seminar Course for Standardization of Management and Impletion (sic) of ISO 9001-2015 as Pre-Requisite Requirement to Filing of Applications for New Contractor’s License” which was circulated online and was sent to some construction firms and contractors.

Engr. Roland Acuna, DTI provincial director, on Saturday said reports had reached the agency that certain personalities used the board resolution to solicit fees for the purported five-day seminar course for Standardization of Management and Implementation of ISO 9001-2015.

Acuna said the PCAB informed then that Board Resolution No. 434, Series of 2017 was “fake”.

He said PCAB did not authorize any solicitation of fees relative to the conduct of the seminar.

He advised the contractors to visit the nearest DTI office in their area for clarifications and verification of PCAB-related issuances. (TPG)
