At least 60 employees of MGB XII had successfully registered to PhilSys. Prior to the registration date, MGB XII personnel were given a form to fill out. Upon registration, individual employees underwent screening for the filled-in forms then proceed to PSA XII staff counter for validation of information.

The demographic data includes name, sex, birth date and place, blood type, address, residency, marital status and an optional contact information while biometrics data includes photograph, iris scan, and full fingerprints.

To implement the basic safety protocol of the office such social distancing and the proper wearing of mask/ face shield, each division was given an allotted time to accomplish their staff registration. The PhilSys ID will be delivered on the permanent address stated in the form.

PhilSys ID was established under Republic Act No. 11055, otherwise known as the Philippine Identification System Act. It is the government’s central identification platform for all citizen and resident aliens of the Philippines. According to PSA, the PhilSys ID aims to provide a valid proof of identity for all citizens.
