DTI warns contractors of bogus email addresses

Sita Asequia,

The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) has warned the public to be cautious of bogus email addresses disguising itself to be part of the agency to scam stakeholders.

This was disclosed by DTI Provincial Director Ruel B. Paclipan as he warns the public to be careful  in transacting with email address unauthorized by DTI.

He said as “support dti.gov.ph” is a bogus email address and is in no way connected with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), Construction Industry Authority of the Philippines (CIAP), and the Philippine Contractor’s Accreditation Board (PCAB) .

Adding that the purported Board Resolution No. 434, Series of 2017 which was shown to be issued by the PCAB on 18 January 2017, requiring the mandatory Training / Seminar for CFY 2017-2018 and CFY 2018-2019 or the “Completion of Five Days Seminar Course for Standardization of Management and Impletion (sic) of ISO 9001-2015 as a prerequisite requirement to filing (sic) of Application for New Contractor’s License” does not exist.

Contractors are advised to exercise caution and verify from PCAB before undertaking action regarding compliance with application requirements stated in various advertisements. The AMO and COSH seminars are the only required seminars for new applications and the ISO 9001-2015 is not a prerequisite to the filing of said application.
