    CLICK HERE to see original text --> Republic Act No. 10054

    in the process of refining this republic act, several developments have already transpired, and you should also have a copy of those developments (meeting minutes, implementing rules and regulations or IRRs, etc) to get the whole picture as it is at present. heck even the Sept 30 limit for keeping the stickers free of charge has been fought for! but to sum it up dti wants their stickers on the helmets. period.

    there's an easy way out actually, buy a new helmet. no lines, no waiting, no hassles.

    thats dti haha department of trade and industry, interested in the continuous flow of trade in the country. by the looks of it they really dont care about safety, drop by unitop and rusi, they sell very cheap helmets with the ICC stickers already there! driving within the city perhaps that's ok, but hitting speeds starting 80? its your HEAD literally at risk! lol

    Went to the park again today. The tents are gone and found someone who said they were handling the DTI stickers at their office on San Jose st. next to hotel Nicanor. Got there around 9 and was too late to get a number to wait in line for the morning. Returned at 11 and put our name in for the afternoon number, waiting thing. Came back at 12:45 and was out the door for home at a little after 1:30. 3 trips to Dgt and about P1,500 in food, fuel, etc. and we've got our "free" stickers. The DTI office is getting congested already and there is no real flow chart type planning at all. Be prepared is all I can say. YMMV.
    Even if someone higher up realizes the law is misguided and it gets recalled, I've got my holographic ICC stickers and the joyous memory of the hunt which no one can take away.
    We must have just missed you, we were there on another matter right at 1:30.

    Ok, I would be very interested in anyone who can clarify this part;


    The DTI shall issue guidelines, which should include the specifications regarding standard protective motorcycle helmets.


    Does anyone have any idea exactly WHAT these guidelines are?

    While at DTI today, there was a woman there with a similar helmet to the one my wife has, which came with an ICC sticker. She told us that it was only good for a backrider, not a driver of a motorcycle.

    I assume this means that since the driver of the motorcycle is in front, that by Philippine law he/she MUST be going faster than the passenger, and therefore needs a better helmet than his/her passenger which is obviously going slower because they are behind the driver?

    No rules for them yet, that will probably be at the discretion of the LTO Officer - great source of income !!!

    So we're nearly there with rules for the driver and rules for the back-rider, but no regulations for the one in the middle. I guess they also havn't given much thought to the kid sitting on the fuel tank, the driver swerving about because he's only got one hand on the throttle, the other hand is busy texting, and his pregnant wife balanced behind him, with a kid under one arm and her shopping under the other, and all the while riding side-saddle. An ICC sticker on this guys forehead is really going to make him feel bomb proof.

    larry that's one of the problems even in metro manila itself. there was a reported case of a helmet that passed in one dti office but has been rejected in another even when the helmet had an international safety standard sticker. reason for the reject is that the helmet brand was not in the list. click here

    looking at the guidelines will help little because the guys in the offices keep on changing them and not alerting everyone concerned fast enough, if not following them properly. chances are we will be looking at an obsolete list somewhere found in the internet.

    broadside, exactly my fear. the riding public dont know the rules in full and dont lift a finger to find out or just depend on the word being passed around. so how could they ever have a proper defence when flagged in the street? they can't, they just conform to what the apprehending officer charges them with. but what i like with our officers is - just dont be arrogant in front of them - they aren't like the ones in cebu and manila.


    regarding number of persons on a motorcycle, strictly speaking, only the operator and one passenger is legally allowed on any motorcycle and they should both have ICC helmets on.


    street-level apprehension by the lto will be the standard drivers license, vehicle registration, vehicle operability, and now the helmet with ICC check. the prior item alone gets their hands full!

    It's slowly becoming a big big mess, like the whole World, to many regulations, for to many reasons, for to many people... Enjoy...
