Issues Concern: Definition of Manufacturer



Seeking guidance on the definition/meaning of the term "manufacturer" as stated under Section VII-Technical Specification of the revised Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of Republic Act No. 9184 (R.A.9184.

A perusal of the Definition of Terms under Section 5 of R.A. 9184 and its IRR would show that the word "manufacturer" has not been included therein. Nonetheless, we posit that a common use of the term vis-a-vis its commercial nomenclature may be considered.
