CSF Holds 6th Civil Registry Convention [ Tuesday, 9th of July 2019 | 2 weeks ago ]
The City Government of San Fernando, through its City Civil Registry Office, once again hosted the gathering of its partners in Civil Registration on June 27, 2019 at Heroes Hall.
Its partners, composed of event coordinators, representatives from churches, schools, and hospitals, and barangay officials and secretaries, were oriented on Philippine Identification System (PhilSys) Act, Data Privacy Act, and the 2018 CSFP State of Civil Registration Report.
Municipal Registrar Shiela Garcia of Manaoag, Pangasinan led the discussion on the PhilSys Act, which contained topics on the primary objective of the act; information to be collected and stored under the ID; uses and advantages of the ID; and, registration centers for the ID.
According to Garcia’s report, the Civil Registration will play a vital role in the implementation of the said act since the acquisition of a birth certificate will be the first requirement for obtaining a PhilSys ID.
The country’s Data Privacy Act of 2012 and its definition and contents were also presented by Garcia, in a bid to help the participants, who are also record holders, understand the proper ways and parameters of securing and protecting documents.
Meanwhile, City Civil Registrar Rimando Umali presented the State of Civil Registration Report of the city for the previous year, including the increased number of registered birth and death certificates.
From 13,353 in 2017, the number of registered births for 2018 climbed up to 14,954. While, for the deaths, the recorded number for 2018 was 4,246, higher than the 3,845 in 2017. A small amount of decrease was meanwhile obtained for registered marriages, with 1,363 in 2018 against 1,365 in 2017.
Umali also shared a presentation on the proper procedures and guidelines on civil registration in a bid to strengthen and urge the Fernandinos and its partners on early registration of certificates.
The city’s annual convention of Civil Registration partners is now on its sixth year and was anchored on the theme, “Inclusive and Responsive CRVS: Working Smarter through Innovation.”
