CITY OF SAN FER­NANDO - In line with cel­e­bra­tion of Civil Reg­istry Month, the Philip­pine Sta­tis­tics Au­thor­ity Re­gion III (PSA-3) re­cently vowed to im­prove the qual­ity and ac­cu­racy of reg­is­ter­ing var­i­ous doc­u­ments ap­plied for by pub­lic to the agen cy.

An­chored on the t h e m e # na­pa­pana­hongCRVs, PSA- 3 Di r ect or Edgardo Pare stressed the im­por­tance of ac­cu­rate in­for­ma­tion reg­is­tered by each in­di­vid­ual as PSA doc­u­ments are con­sid­ered le­gal and of­fi­cial.

This in­cludes birth, mar­riage and death cer­tifi­cates, de­crees, le­gal in­stru­ments, and ju­di­cial or­ders which are all reg­is­tered to PSA as na­tional records.

“This year’s cel­e­bra­tion of Civil Reg­istry Month is an­chored on the theme # na­pa­pana­hongCRVS as the qual­ity and ac­cu­racy of data af­fects peo­ple’s civil sta­tus and le­gal doc­u­ments,” Pare said.

Pare noted that they are now set to im­prove the elec­tronic sys­tem they cur­rently uti­lize to avoid in­stances of dou­ble regis­tra­tion which are usu­ally en­coun­tered on birth and mar­riage cer­ti­fi­cat es.

“There are in­stances that when an in­di­vid­ual had wrong in­for­ma­tion on his or her cer­tifi­cate, he rereg­is­ters him­self through late regis­tra­tion to avoid the has­sle of cor­rect­ing it. But right now, we are try­ing to ad­dress such con­cern by re­quir­ing a cer­tifi­cate of no record first,” he said.

Aside from the said mea­sure, Pare also dis­closed other in­for­ma­tion dis­sem­i­na­tion and fo­rum ac­tiv­i­ties are set this month to fur­ther im­prove the ser­vices de­liv­ered by the agency.

“Among the ac­tiv­i­ties lined up this month in­clude pre­sen­ta­tion of the Re­sults of the 20142015 Anal­y­sis of Causes for Na­tional Deaths for Ac­tion, dis­cus­sion on Statu­tory Rules on Civil Regis­tra­tion, lec­ture on Civil Regis­tra­tion and Vi­tal St at i st i cs (CRVS), and CRVS In­ter­ac­tive Chal­lenge,” Pare added.
