IMPLEMENTASYON NG BATAS SA MGA PAPUTOK, DAPAT I-EVALUATE

0

IGINIIT ni Senador Joel Villanueva na kailangan nang magsagawa ng ebalwasyon sa pagpapatupad ng batas kaugnay sa pagbebenta, paggawa, distribusyon at paggamit ng firecrackers at iba pang pyrotechnic devices.

Sa pagdinig sa Senado, sinabi ni Villanueva na sa unang pagsusuri ay may problema sa pagapapatupad ng batas na posibleng dahilan kung bakit may ilang manufacturer ang hindi sumusunod dito.

“We are here to listen and to help in any way we can. Hopefully, the PNP could provide us information on how we are doing with the implementation of RA 7183, because at the end of the day, even if we pass another law, it still will not be effective if we will not implement it properly,” saad ni Villanueva.

Samantala, naniniwala si Senador Sherwin Gatchalian na kinukunsinti ng ilang lokal na opisyal at enforcers ang ilang backyard producers na nagbebenta ng unlicensed fireworks.

“The standards are supposed to make the firecrackers safe or the manufacturer of firecrackers safe? Tama po ba?” tanong ni Gatchalian kay Trade Undersecretary Ruth Castelo sa pagdinig sa Senado.

“So if that’s the case, how come we still have a lot of accidents? Because if we have standards to make products safe for our consumers to use, so why then do we have accidents every New Year?” dagdag na tanong ng senador nang sumagot si Castelo nang oo.

Sinabi ni Castelo na ilang backyard producers ng paputok ay walang approval mula sa DTI.

“Well obviously Usec, we all know that it’s being tolerated by the local officials as well as the local enforcement agencies there. Because we all know that if they don’t have any licenses or certifications, they can’t operate, they should be closed down,” diin ni Gatchalian. (DANG SAMSON-GARCIA)
