The National Privacy Commission launched an online registration system Friday for government and private organizations.
The NPC Registration System is the latest portal developed and implemented by the NPC to deliver services in a more effective and efficient manner.
“The call for digitalization of government services by the current administration triggered the launching of the NPCRS this February, and the Data Breach Notification Management System last April 2022. The finalization of the circular on registration was simultaneous with the development of the National Privacy Commission Registration System,” said NPC commissioner John Henry Naga.
The implementation of the NPCRS will ensure ease of monitoring requests/approval of registration applications; offer secure portal for the registration monitoring unit to access registration data using role based access control; create real-time visibility in the validation of documentary requirements; provide accurate collection of sectors and subsectors information; and allow accurate verification of active/inactive registration as well as an efficient retrieval of contact details of the data protection officer.
The new system requires all personal information controllers and processors, through their data protection officers, to comply with the registration requirements provided in the Data Privacy Act of 2012 and its implementing rules and regulations.
“Through the NPCRS, the data processing activities of PICs and PIPs will be effectively and efficiently monitored. Through this system, compliance with the Data Privacy Act of 2012 will be ensured and our endeavor to protect the personal data of every Juan and Juana will be fortified,” Naga said.
