The Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) launched yesterday the simultaneous opening of the PRC’s identification card renewal centers in 13 branches of SM Malls nationwide, including Davao City. Josephine Villegas-Liamzon, PRC regional director, said the national launching of the PRC ID Renewal Centers at SM Malls is part of PRC’s e-service campaign, following the Online Application System for Board Examinations.

“This would be a perfect venue for professionals, both living and visiting Davao City, to easily renew and claim their professional identification cards while shopping and dining at the mall, during mall hours, from Mondays to Sundays, and even on certain holidays,” Villegas-Liamzon said.

On Aug 6, 2012, the PRC, Bureau of Treasury and SM Malls Inc. signed a memorandum of agreement to launch the project through a public-private partnership.

Upon application, an applicant can get his/her ID after seven working days.

PRC chairman Teresita Manzala said the opening of the centers will encourage Filipino professionals to renew their professional licenses at malls where they can file applications for ID renewal and to claim them “at their own time, and at their own convenience, without the hassles of going through long queues.

Manzala said the e-service provided by the PRC will help Filipino professionals renew their license on time, as such is important in rendering their professional services as there are 46 different regulatory boards under the PRC.

Last year, the Board of Real Estate Service with more than 20,000 professionals joined the list.
