THE government will release next month the implementing rules and regulations of the recently-signed Philippine Identification System Act that takes effect on Aug. 25, 2018, the National Economic and Development Authority said Friday.

Neda said in a statement concerned government agencies, along with the Philippine Statistics Authority as the primary implementing agency, were ready to enforce the Philippine Identification System (PhilSys) Act, starting off with the drawing up of its implementing rules and regulations.

The PhilSys Act or Republic Act No. 11055, which creates a central identification platform for all citizens and resident foreigners in the Philippines, will take effect on Aug. 25, 2018.

The PhilSys Policy and Coordination Council, the inter-agency body that will formulate policies and guidelines to ensure effective coordination among the different agencies, convened in an orientation meeting on Aug. 15 to jump-start its implementation.
