DOST offers one-stop lab services

FOOD companies intending to introduce their products in the Philippine market can avail themselves of government’s one-stop laboratory services. The Philippine Food and Drug Administration processes these firms’ applications for their license to operate (LTO) and their certificate of product registration, which requires the submission of a certificate of analysis for raw materials or finished products from an accredited laboratory. The Department of Science and Technology’s One-stop Laboratory Services for Global Competitiveness (OneLab) project has 16 DOST Regional Standard and Testing Laboratories, six DOST Research and Development Institute, and 13 non-DOST testing laboratories.
