The Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) has released the new layout including content and format of the Professional Identification Card (PIC). The new PRC ID was already effective last month – September 2019.
As shown below, the photo is now on the left side with the details on the right. The profession and bar code have now occupied the whole expanse of the bottom section.
Accordingly, the new design is in consonance with the policy of government to promote ease of doing business by simplifying the documentary forms and processes which include the PIC, and in compliance with the requirements of Republic Act No. 10173, the Data Privacy Act of 2012.
