The Land Transportation Office (LTO) entered to a memorandum agreement Wednesday with the Coalition of Clean Air Advocates (CCAA) and Private Emission Testing Center (PETC) IT providers to fight smoke belching in support of the government’s implementation of Clean Air Act.
The agreement was signed by CCAA President Jojo Buerano, Michael Barrido-RDMS, Atty. Ben Mora of LTO-PETC Monitoring Team, Benny Techico-Eurolink, and Mark Halili- ETC IT.
The signing of MOA was personally witnessed by LTO Chief Alberto Suansing.
Suansing believed that the move will help the LTO to monitor emission test results conducted by various emission test centers.
“This is an effort by the LTO to clean the air through monitoring of emission test results, being conducted by various emission test centers… ito ay campaign natin para sa pag-didisiplina sa industriya,” Suansing said.
He said that the move will strengthen partnership between LTO, non-government organizations (NGOs) and PETC IT providers to fight non-appearance in any emission testing needed for the registration of vehicle and to avoid conflict of interest in emission testing. (LTO)
