A local facility set up by the Department of Science and Technology is allowing local electronics manufacturers to test their prototypes before they are mass produced. 

The EPDC or Electronics Product Development Center based in Bicutan, Taguig was envisioned as a way to help make products of the Philippine electronics industry more viable and attractive for export.

Services offered by the facility are available to schools and companies at a cost 20 percent lower than fees charged by similar testing laboratories within Southeast Asia.
