PHL National ID System

Proposed Nal’t ID system gaining pace at House | Inquirer.net - September 01, 2017
Quote
Once passed into law, the proposed national identification system will require all adult Filipinos to secure a “Filipino ID card” containing personal information, such as their name, birth date, blood type, height, weight, and permanent address.

Besides such basic data, however, confidential information is to be stored in a corresponding database to be kept by government, including, among others, their email address, mobile number, marriage certificate, passport, social security and tax identification numbers, and even their parents’ birth certificate.

According to House Bill 6221, three sets of information shall be maintained under the Filipino Identification System or FilSys: on the card, in a smart chip embedded in the card, and in an electronic database kept and administered by the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA).

On the card itself, the available information will be the following:
Cardholder’s Common Reference Number (CRN)
Full name
A front-facing photograph
Sex
Birth date
Birthplace
Permanent address
Blood type
A barcode

In the smart chip embedded in the card, the following additional information shall be retrievable:
Owner’s enrollment date
Marital status
Parents’ full names
Height
Weight
Distinguishing features
Tax Identification Number

The chip will also contain a record of the cardholder’s biometrics information, which includes scans of their fingerprints, an iris scan and a “facial image exception code.”

Senate to pass national ID system by 2018 | Inquirer - December 05, 2017
Quote
The Senate will likely approve a simpler and incentive-based national identification system instead of the security-based proposal passed by the House of Representatives, Sen. Panfilo Lacson said on Monday.

Lacson heads the Senate justice subcommittee that began deliberating on 10 Senate bills seeking the establishment of a national ID system in the country.

After a two-hour hearing, Lacson said the bill that was shaping up was that the national ID should only be required of Filipinos aged 18 and above and should only contain basic information about a person — his full name, birthdate, birthplace, age and sex.

In contrast, House Bill No. 6221 which was passed in September required more sensitive data fields, such as marital status of one’s parents and the filiation of one’s children.
In requiring only basic information like most other countries, Lacson said the idea was to make it easier for people to access government services with a national ID.

‘National ID system has enough safeguards’
June 13, 2019 - 12:00am

As the principal author of the Philippines Identification System Act, Drilon said the law would ensure efficient delivery of services and ease of transactions with government agencies.

With a national ID system in place, Drilon said it would be easier for individuals seeking basic services from the government to identify themselves and for agencies, both public and private, to verify the information.

He explained the data that will be included in the national ID system would not be different from the information in all government-issued IDs.

Drilon also stressed the law would not affect data privacy as the pertinent provisions of the Data Privacy Act will still apply.

He added the law had nothing to do with the non-passage by the 17th Congress of the proposed amendments to the Human Security Act.

Under the new law, a Common Reference Number (CRN) will be given to all Filipinos containing essential information such as full name, address, date and place of birth, sex, civil status, signature, CRN and date of card issuance, along with a recent photo. 

He emphasized the CRN/ID can be used by a citizen in transactions with all branches of the government, thereby making it more convenient for Filipinos to avail themselves of government services.

The ID will also be honored in transactions with private institutions.

Filipinos living and working abroad can register at embassy or consular offices in their countries of residence or work to get their assigned CRN.

National ID system pilot test to start September 2
Published Aug 27, 2019 8:49:47 PM

He estimated that 107 million Filipinos, including those working overseas and foreigners who are residents in the Philippines, would be covered by the national ID system by the end of the Duterte administration.

The test drive will run until December, and aims to register a substantial number of Filipinos nationwide.

The ID will contain ten pieces of demographic information, including the holder's full name, sex, date of birth, place of birth, blood type, address, and whether they are Filipino or an alien.

President Rodrigo Duterte signed the Philippine Identification System Act August last year.

It’s final: BSP to print nat’l IDs
Philippine Daily Inquirer / 04:38 AM October 08, 2019

To prevent delays that usually follow a contentious bidding process among private contractors, the government has decided to take matters into its own hands and print the ID cards itself.

On Monday, the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) signed a memorandum of agreement with the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) to produce blank cards for IDs under the Philippine Identification System (PhilSys).

The printing of the ID cards will cost a total of P3.4 billion out of the total PhilSys project cost of P30 billion. Filipino citizens may expect to have the cards by 2022.

116 million cards

Under the deal, the BSP shall produce 116 million cards over a period of three years for “Phil IDs,” which are nontransferable and will be issued to all Philippine citizens or resident aliens registered under the PhilSys.

Among the tasks of the PSA are managing the PhilSys database, ensuring the availability, confidentiality, integrity, accuracy and readiness of the data in the blank cards, and undertaking the personalization, quality checking and distribution of the Phil IDs.

Each ID card will cost P30, but will be provided free to citizens, BSP Senior Assistant Governor Dahlia Luna said.

No need for 2 IDs

It will become the official proof of identity for each Filipino and will eliminate the need for providing two government IDs when transacting with companies like financial institutions, Diokno said.
