Pre-Registration for National ID Starts

In an update, the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) has started the pre-registration for the national ID system. According to deputy national statistician and Assistant Secretary Rosalinda Bautista, personnel from the PSA will be visiting around five million households in different parts of the country until December 30 – personnel will start in areas with low cases of COVID.

Bautista stresses that the PSA abides by the Data Privacy Act and that information is secured.

“Paglapit po sa inyo isa po sa standard ng proseso ay tanungin ang respondent kung willing siya magparehistro at ibigay ang kaniyang impormasyon. Pag hindi siya pumayag hindi po natin siya pwede ipilit at di rin pwede idemanda dahil ayaw niya. May karapatan po ang bawat Pilipino na maprotektahan ang kaniyang personal information kaya po yung pagkuha namin ng impormasyon ay talaga pong napaka-secured. Sumusunod po kami sa Data Privacy Act ng 2012,” states Assistant Secretary Rosalinda Bautista, in an interview with ABS-CBN Teleradyo.
