I copied this article

Good news! The Department of Trade and Industry announces that motorcycle drivers who owned an old or previously purchased motorcycle protective helmet can secure the required ICC or PS stickers to avoid apprehension starting August 1, 2012.

Bad news! For now, motorcycle owners/drivers have to wait for the announcement from DTI when the stickers shall be available for distribution, says DTI Regional Director Asteria Caberte during the DyAB Traffic Summit early today.

The stickers are available at P1.25 only but the motorcycle drivers have to pay the processing fee of P100 upon securing the sticker at the DTI. Caberte warned motorists of the scam selling fake ICC and PS stickers as their agency is filing charges against an individual who was caught selling it.

The ICC (Import Compliance Certificate) sticker is issued to all imported helmet while the PS (Product Standard) sticker is issued to all locally-manufactured helmet.

Most of the available motorcycle protective helmet in the market is imported. Though, according to Director Caberte there are already local manufacturers that passed the standard requirements.

The DTI has listed 49 brands of approved motorcycle helmet. The most popular brand is “Index“. Here’s the partial list of the brands of helmet issued with the ICC mark:

2 14. GPX 27. MRC 39. STUDSS
AGV 15. H 28. NEXX 40. SUN
AINON 16. HF 29. NOLAN 41. TANKED
AM 17. HJC 30.PENGUIN 42. TRANSCYLCE
ARAI 18. HNJ 31. POSH 43. VCAN
AVEX 19. HONGYING BIO 32. POWERCYCLE 44. VOLTZ
AXA 20. HPH 33. SA-070 45. WEILING
BEN-2 21. INDEX 34. SHOEI 46. XPOT
BIO 22. KH 35. SOL 46. YAMAHA
CABERG 23. KOR 36. SPACE CROWN 47. YEMA
CARTING 24. LEV3 37. SPYDER 48. ZEBRA
EXSOL 25. LEV3 38. ST 49. ZEUS
GDR 26.LS2

while the PS (Product Standard) sticker is issued to all locally-manufactured helmet.

Don't they mean Product of Standard or PoS?

Simple solution and a one time fee, shave your head and have it tattooed on your forehead.
I like the PoS post, very accurate.

My missus makes me wear a bicycle helmet when i ride jeepneys.

It's just like the short bus back in school. Ah, nostalgia.

Does the driver need stickers, too, or just passengers?

There are some cool Spiderman stickers for sale at the Chinese shop. 15 pesos.

A bit noisy wearing a bell on your head. A lot of DOT/Snell helmets aren't up to this standard.

Helmets in the Philippines are tested to very rigid specifications, they must break in half when dropped on concrete from 5 feet above. Bell helmets will not meet this standard. Consider using it as a planter instead.

Bell helmets are the world's largest manufacturers, one of the finest helmets manufactured anywhere in the world, and is of far superior in quality standards than most any of the brain crushers sold in this country. I'm just shocked it was not on the list. Granted they cost $200-$800..

but hay if you have a $20-$50 head, than put it in a $20-$50 dollar helmet....
