PRC Directory: List of All PRC Regional and Satellite Offices in the Philippines

The Philippine Regulatory Commission (PRC) is a government agency responsible for the regulation and supervision of certain professionals in the Philippines. It was created in 1947 to regulate the practice of professions such as architecture, engineering, forestry, and accounting, among others.

The PRC also issues licenses to qualified individuals who wish to practice their chosen profession. Aside from issuing professional licenses and certifications, it also administers board exams to aspiring professionals and processes applications for registration with its associated regulatory boards. Moreover, the PRC is tasked with monitoring the conduct of professionals within its jurisdiction in order to ensure public protection. It may issue warning letters or penalize erring individuals by canceling or suspending their respective licenses or certificates.

The PRC works collaboratively with other government agencies such as the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), Professional Regulation Commission (PRC), National Bureau of Investigation (NBI), and Technical Education Skills Development Authority (TESDA) in order to meet its mandates. As part of its mission, the PRC ensures that only those who possess sufficient knowledge and competence are allowed to exercise their respective professions for the protection of both consumers and practitioners alike.

If you think that the difficulties in life ended when the many sleepless nights of reviewing for the licensure examinations paid off, well, here’s what we have to say. Hold off on the party hats and the celebrations because, you’ll still need to get your ID or license and Certification of Board Rating and Passing from the Philippine Regulatory Commission (PRC). These are all necessary documents if you wish to start practicing your profession legally.


PRC: Background, Mandate, and Related Services

Thankfully, the PRC stays true to its mandate. Since it was first created as a national government agency by virtue of  Presidential Decree (P.D.) No. 223 in June 22, 1973, PRC (formerly known as the Office of the Boards of Examiners) was created by Republic Act No. 546 on June 17, 1950, under the Civil Service Commission (CSC). It started its operation in 1974, under the general supervision of the Office of the President.

The PRC has been mandated to issue certificates of registration, with both Filipino and English translation. Eventually, the database of registered professionals were computerized, with help from the National Computer Center. Later on, the PRC eventually started to register all board examination passers as civil service eligibles pursuant to R.A. 1080. Later, in 1977, the PRC started issuing registration cards with a validity period of 3 years, by virtue of the Letter of Instruction No. 567. Eventually, the Commission turned to offering most of their services online, though some still requires visiting the PRC offices.

That said, PRC makes their offices more accessible by opening branches and service centers that will ensure the continuity in the delivery of their frontline services.
