(Newsletter October 2023)

The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) celebrated a significant milestone with the conduct of the 3rd National Convention on Civil Registration and Vital Statistics (3NCCRVS) and the 2nd Philippine Identity Summit (2PIS), which were held back-to-back from 26 to 28 September at the SMX Convention Center in Bacolod City. 

Adopting the theme “CRVS and PhilSys (Philippines identity System): Promoting Inclusivity and Accessibility through Digital Transformation”, the PSA remained steadfast in achieving its commitment to the CRVS Decade declaration of getting everyone in the picture through innovation and technology. The topics covered in the 3-day activity highlighted the inextricable link of civil registration to statistics, social service delivery, identity, and nationality.

A total of 1,683 participants attended this major event, including local civil registrars, local government officials and personnel, solemnizing officers, summit speakers, and PSA officials and staff.

The convention and summit aim to update and inform stakeholders about the recent developments in civil registration and vital statistics, recent guidance by the Civil Registrar General, and showcasing the use cases of PhilSys. This event coincided with the celebration of PSA's 10th anniversary and was a testament to the agency's progress and innovation in its mandates on statistics, civil registration, and national identification over the past decade.
