Certification for Philippine garment firms availing GSP
20
Jun '18
The Philippines has adopted rules on securing certificate of accreditation for garment manufacturers, exporters and subcontractors availing of preferential tariffs under the generalized system of preference (GSP) scheme. A certificate will be issued by the department of trade and industry (DTI) accreditation board confirming that minimum labour standards have been met.

The Workers’ Rights Review Committee shall consider freedom of association and the effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining; elimination of all forms of forced or compulsory labor; effective abolition of child labor; and elimination of discrimination with respect to employment and occupation as grounds for review.

It will also review acceptable conditions of work provided under Philippine laws and regulations related to minimum wages, hours of work, social security system, Home Development Mutual Fund, Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PHIC or PhilHealth), Employee Compensation Commission (ECC) and occupational safety and health, and international labour standards to protect basic worker rights and enhance workers’ job security and improve their terms of employment.
