3M Philippines continues to work closely with the relevant government agencies as we share and report information on counterfeit products proliferating specially at this time of the Taal eruption and other health threats. Customers are reminded of the importance in sourcing their 3M™ N95 respirators from authorized distributors and retailers. The 3M contact information where you may get the channel partner (distributors) and retail (stores) information nearest you are: Globe/Bayantel line: 1800-8902-0491; PLDT/Smart line: 1800-1320-0201; Other Network: 63-282711680; Email: 3Mproducts.email@example.com This ensures that you get authentic respiratory protection that are tested for quality and performance.
We continue to urge the public to be vigilant in protecting themselves against profiteering and fraud for the N95 respirators, and encourage that you continue to bring these matters to our attention as well as report such instances of market abuse to the Enforcement Division of the Philippine Competition Commission at +632 87719-722 local 232 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Likewise, customers may also report overpricing and any other illegal act of price manipulation through the One-DTI (1-384) Hotline or send an email to email@example.com.
All respirators used should be tested and certified by international approval bodies such as National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) with N95 rating or its equivalent. Particulate respirators with N95 rating offer a minimum of 95% filtration efficiency if worn properly. Using counterfeit respirators that have likely not been tested and certified cannot be guaranteed to perform as promised. This can pose serious health risks.
Here is one way to validate if your 3M™ 8210 N95 Respirator is authentic.
3M Philippines continues to work closely and proactively with first responders of various government agencies, local government units, as well as channel and retail partners to provide the public, and the local and international non-profit organizations with their supply and donations requests supported by the strength of 3M’s global network.

We are closely coordinating with our sources of supply in the region and the U.S. to continue to replenish the inventory and ensure that the public receives authentic products with proper warranty. We caution that some business establishments are taking advantage of the high demand for proper respirators/masks by pricing the same at more than double the usual retail price. Counterfeit and/or unregistered products are likewise flooding the market.
We thus urge the public to be vigilant in protecting themselves against such fraud, and encourage that you continue to bring these matters to our attention as well as report such instances of market abuse to the Enforcement Division of the Philippine Competition Commission at +632 87719-722 local 232 or email@example.com.
We remain faithful to our commitment to help improve every life with science and are doing our utmost to be here for our countrymen during this time of need.
