Which Government Agency is monitoring Franchising Companies?
« on: February 20, 2007, 12:52:32 pm »
Hi! Anyone who knows which government agency is monitoring companies that offer franchises? Is it DTI?
We need help with our franchise and we would want to discuss it with the proper authorities. Thanks.

Franchising is practically a new business in the Philippines. When it comes to registration, DTI is asking for the copy of the franchise agreement before you can register as a franchisee. When it comes to monitoring, there is no such agency here in the Philippines unlike in the US where there's a specific agency who is the watchdog of the franchising industry. Practically, there are only three private associations doing the monitoring namely: Philippine Franchise Association, ( PFA), Association of Filipino Franchisers (AFFI) and the Foodcart Association of the Philippines ( FOCAPHIL). The counterpart in the government is the DTI.
