PSA Certificates Complied With
8 January 2021 – The ordinance requiring business establishments having entertainers and night workers to acquire Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA)-authenticated birth certificates with their working permits is complied with.
This is the result of the monitoring and evaluation done by the Sangguniang Panlungsod headed by City Secretary Atty. Brenner Bengwayan as to city ordinance 102, Series of 2008.
Offices requested to give observations as to compliance include Civil Registar Bernardina Tabin, Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Regional Director Ronie Guzman, RD of Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) Villafe Alibuyog, Executive Assistant to the mayor Marlene De Castro, City Health and Services Office Rowena Galpo, City Social Welfare and Development head Betty Fangasan, Baguio City Police Office City Director P/Col Allen Rae Co and President of Baguio Association of Bars and Entertainers Society Allan Bandoy.
In general, the heads of offices expressed support to the ordinance, and that it has been complied with, in their respective offices. Dr. Rowena Galpo said the HSO has complied with the ordinance since 2008.
DOLE RD Guzman said the ordinance is in compliance to national orders, with the elimination of worst forms of child labor and provisions for stronger protection to working children, or those below 18 years old. Child-safe and child-friendly environment, policies and procedures are also being implemented in DOLE’s programs, mandates and activities, he assured. Issuances such as Department Advisory 01-08 (series of 2008), and Department Orders 149 (series of 2016) and 04 (series of 1999) address the concerns of working children, De Guzman added.
PSA RD Alibuyog informed the monitoring team that a PSA-issued document does not only show one’s identity and eligibility to work, but also a protection from violence, abuse and exploitation. The ordinance also is appreciated as it helps in the fulfillment of the PSA advocacy for one hundred percent birth registration for all Filipino citizens, he further said.
Permits and Licensing Officer Allan Abayao said working permit applicants are required to submit PSA-issued birth certificates and details may be verified by the OCSWDO and the Philippine National Police (PNP).
Recommendations by the SP local legislative staff however are given for the National Privacy Commission as to the protection of individual personal information which may be seen in the PSA documents.
Coordination with concerned offices should also be done to align provisions of agencies and DOLE on the eradication of child labor, it was also recommended.
Owners of establishments with entertainers and night workers violating provisions of the ordinance should also be penalized with fine and revocation or forfeiture of business permits, the monitoring staff also suggested. – Julie G. Fianza
