THE Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) in Davao Region has encouraged motorcycle owners to strictly follow the schedule for application of stickers for helmets and visors to ensure smooth implementation.
DTI-Davao director Marizon S. Loreto said the agency really needs the cooperation of all motorcycle owners in order for the application for Import Commodity Clearance (ICC) stickers for helmets and visors to be organized.
"We really have adopted this system so that we can avoid long queues which will somehow give the applicants some discomfort especially that rainy season has already started," she said.
The issuance of stickers is pursuant to Republic Act 10054 or the Motorcycle Helmet Act of 2009.
Effective last August 6, DTI accepts application for helmet/visor stickers based on the last digit of motorcycle plates. The motorcycle riders/owners are requested to follow the following schedule: 1 and 2-Monday; 3 and 4-Tuesday; 5 and 6-Wednesday; 7 and 8-Thursday; and 9 and 0- Friday.
As requirements for application, the following have to be submitted: two copies of filled up request form; photocopy of government-issued identification card such as driver's license, postal ID, and voter’s ID; photocopy of the motorcycle’s Certificate of Registration; and the motorcycle helmets.
Those who have recently purchased helmets with ICC stickers in it, as provided by the store/establishment where they have bought the said item must submit the Official Receipt to the office.
Loreto said the motorcycle riders must take advantage of the opportunity that application is still for free until December 31 this year.
