PRC Registration of New Professionals

The Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) of the Republic of the Philippines has passed Resolution No. 2006-313 (amending Resolution No. 2004-235) to accommodate registration of newly registering professionals under exceptional circumstances such as those who are abroad.

This new resolution addresses the shortcomings of Resolution No. 2004-235 which calls for registering professionals to personally fill up all entries in the registry book, affix his/her signature and 1 x 1 picture with complete nametag on it, therefore making personal appearance to the Commission mandatory.

Recognizing the problems encountered by new registering professionals who have either left abroad immediately after examinations or before the results were released, the Commission now allows newly passed professionals to register through their authorized representatives. Following are the requirements and conditions:

  • The new registrants should fill up an Oath Form required by PRC and take his oath under the presence of an officer of the Philippine Embassy or Consulate where he/she is situated. The following are required:
    • Certificate from the PRC notifying the examinee that he/she passed the Board, indicating their scores (original and photocopy);
    • Panunumpa ng Propesyonal from PRC (original and photocopy); and,
    • $25.00 notarial fee
  • The registrant shall designate his/her representative in the Philippines and execute a Special Power of Attorney (SPA) preferably before the same officer of the Philippine Embassy or Consulate who administered his/her oath. Notarial fee: $25.00;
  • The SPA should expressly declare that his/her representative is fully authorized to accomplish, sign and execute documents, perform all acts necessary for his/her registration; and,
  • The registrant should come to PRC as soon as he/she arrives from overseas to personally sign the Registry Book of Professionals.
