The Philippine Statistics Authority said it will start the second step of the Philippine Identification System (PhilSys) registration nationwide on Jan. 4, 2021.
In an announcement signed by PSA Undersecretary Dennis Mapa, dated Dec. 12, it said the Step 2 registration will start “on a gradual, small scale basis”.
Step 2 registration refers to the validation of supporting documents and capturing of biometric information at registration centers.
Mapa said up to 8.4 million Filipinos have completed the Step 1 registration, or the house–to-house collection of demographic information, as of Dec. 9.
Registration for Step 1 was done on Oct. 12-Nov. 25 nationwide.
He called on the public to raise queries through the PhilSys official Facebook Page, or through hotline 1388. PSA also announced that the agency will release an official advisory on hired and trained enumerators for Step 2 registration.*PNA
