DTI 6 urges establishments to secure Safety Seal Certification
The Safety Seal Certification is a voluntary certification scheme asserting that an establishment is compliant with the minimum public health standards set by the government and uses or integrates its contact tracing with StaySafe.ph.
The DTI issues the Safety Seal Certificate for supermarkets, groceries, convenience stores, membership shopping clubs, construction supply/ hardware stores, logistics service providers, barbershops and salons, and service and repair shops.
Applying for a Safety Seal is at no cost to the establishment and is renewable; valid for six (6) months, except in the case of tourism enterprises where the seal is valid for one year.
Further, Safety Seal is only voluntary, it is not mandatory for continued operation. Establishments, however, still need to comply with minimum public health standards and the allowable operational capacity for continued operation.

- Aklan: (1) Wilcon Depot and (2) Gentrade International Phil. Inc. Service and Repair Shop
