ePRC System now on eGovPH!


ePRC System

MANILA, PHILIPPINES - Aligned with “Expediting Digitalization Efforts Towards Better Public Service Delivery,” known as SONA Directive No. PBBM 2023 – 41, the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC), together with the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT), launched the integration of ePRC System with eGov PH App piloting on ePIC system availability, today, July 8, 2024, at Meeting Room A, Secretariat Building, Philippine International Convention Center (PICC).  In attendance are respective officials from the partnering agencies, namely: Hon. Charito A. Zamora, PRC Chairperson; Commissioners Hon. Jose Y. Cueto, Jr. and Hon. Erwin M. Enad; and Assistant Commissioner, Hon. Lord Louis P. Valera; the DICT Secretary, Hon. Ivan John E. Uy and Undersecretary Hon. David L. Almirol, Jr.


The PRC, recognized as an attached agency to the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) remains its firm stance in regulating and supervising the practice of forty-five (45) professions in the Philippines.  One of its vital roles is the issuance of PRC Identification Cards (PICs) to registered professionals that carry out their credential validation and qualification as well as authority in the practice of their respective professions in the Philippines and abroad.  With the ultimate goal of streamlining its processes and enhancing accessibility, the Commission, fundamentally led the launch of the digital version of PIC or the electronic PICs (ePICs) last February 27, 2023.  Notably, the Philippines' digital transformation efforts spearheaded by the DICT resulted in the innovation of the eGovPH app in June 2023. The eGovPH app allows the integration of various national government services into one app. This app simply utilizes Single-Sign-On (SSO) APIs and a Mobile ID wallet module for easy and secure access to government services while minimizing economic costs for the citizens and its clients.

With this at hand, PRC and DICT’s partnership merges services into the eGovPH App. This integration allows the professionals/users to access their ePIC directly through the eGovPH app and at the same time made available in the eGovPH Mobile ID Wallet. Thus, the new and improved ePRC system, offers services on a fast track and with ease, providing a better public service experience to its clients.


The collaborative efforts of PRC and DICT signify the government’s commitment to digitalize and upgrade public service delivery. As Secretary Uy once said: “The visionary leadership and support of our President has inspired the Department to ramp up its digital transformation efforts, leading to the launch and rollout of our e-Government projects over the past year: e-Travel, eGov PH Super App, eLGU, and eReport. We will continue to optimize these existing platforms and implement our other e-Government projects to enable efficient public service delivery and support sound data-driven decisions.”  Today, Secretary Uy reiterated that this is a revolutionary approach to the government’s relentless pursuit of public service; transforming a landscape of 24/7 governance to our citizens towards “Bagong Pilipinas. With pride and honor, Hon. Zamora expressed appreciation to DICT for recognizing PRC as one of the first batch of government agencies to be onboarded on the eGovPH App. Thus, PRC remains on its professional track towards: “Bayang Digital, Bayang Konektado.”


Through the heightened and advanced technologies and nurturing inter-agency consortiums, the government aspires and trusts in providing a more competent, professional, and unified service to its citizens; eventually, refining and cultivating the overall quality of public service for a Bagong Pilipinas!
