DISCUSSION/EXPLANATION: R.A 8981
R.A 8981 is known as AN ACT MODERNIZING THE PROFESSIONAL
REGULATION COMMISSION, REPEALING FOR THE PURPOSE PRESIDENTIAL
DECREE NUMBERED TWO HUNDRED AND TWENTY-THREE, ENTITLED
"CREATING THE PROFESSIONAL REGULATION COMMISSION AND PRESCRIBING
ITS POWERS AND FUNCTIONS," AND FOR OTHER PURPOSES.
The Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) was established as a national government
agency by Presidential Decree (PD) No. 223 dated June 22, 1973, signed by then-President
Ferdinand E. Marcos, and was charged with enforcing the laws governing various professions. It
was originally known as the Office of the Board of Examiners, which was established under the
Civil Service Commission by Republic Act No. 546 on June 17, 1950. The PRC, however, retains no
authority of control or oversight of review centers, organizations, or enterprises under RA 8981. As
for further explanation, education has become a profitable industry for several review facilities.
Anomaly trades or transactions are related with this term. Any gathering of individuals without any
restrictions, anyone can open a review center at any moment. As a result, the reviewers' competence
and integrity do not pass any government office's assessment. As a result, it's not unexpected that we
have low-quality review centers.
The goal of this bill is to add to RA 8981 by amending it. The PRC has a lot of authority and
will have the authority under this measure to review centers, organizations, and businesses must be
licensed, regulated, and supervised. It provides review classes in preparation for the exams it
administers. The proposed change might reduce, if not eliminate. Certain review centers are
committing anomalies, and this will restrict the number of review centers that must fulfill the
standards by the Professional Regulation Commission.
To know more about this law, let’s explore the history of R.A. 8981. The Professional
Regulation Commission performs two important functions in order to fulfill its legal mandate:
conducting and administering licensure examinations to aspiring professionals, and regulating and
supervising the practice of professions in collaboration with the forty-three (43) Professional
Regulatory Boards (PRBs) in the fields of health, business, education, social sciences, engineering,
and technology. Professional Regulatory Boards oversee the practice and ethical standards of their
particular professions and accredit the professional organization that represents them. The PRC
serves almost 4.3 million professionals from 43 different regulated professions, as well as the
hundreds of thousands of prospective professionals who take licensing exams each year.
Professionals, would-be professionals, authorized professional groups, foreign professionals seeking
a temporary visa to perform their professions in the nation, schools and academe, and other
government agencies are among the PRC stakeholders. On April 20, 2013, the Department of
Budget and Management (DBM) gave the PRC authority to reorganize its organizational structure in
order to effectively carry out its duty and to execute the Professional regulation Commission
Modernization Act. DBM has accepted the revised Organizational Structure and Staffing Pattern
(OSSP) mandated by Republic Act (RA) No. 8981. On October 10, 2016, Department of Budget
and Management submitted the Notice of Organization, Staffing, and Compensation Action

commission, repealing for the purpose presidential decree numbered two hundred and twenty-three,

and for other purposes has a total of 21 sections. Its statement of policy acknowledges the important
role of professionals in nation-building and, to that end, promotes the sustained development of a
reservoir of professionals whose competence has been determined by honest and credible licensure
examinations and whose standards of professional service and practice are internationally recognized
and considered world-class. The individuals who make up the organization, as defined by Republic
Act 8981, assist manage expectations, facilitate improved decision-making, and give consistency. The
composition of the commission shall be led by one (1) full-time Chairperson and two (2) full-time
Commissioners, all of whom will be selected by the President for a seven-year term without the
possibility of reappointment, beginning when they take office. Appointments to a vacancy that arises
before the expiry of a Commissioner's term are limited to the remainder of the immediate
predecessor's term. When the Chairperson's term expires, the most senior Commissioner will
temporarily undertake and conduct the Chairperson's responsibilities and functions until the
President appoints a new Chairperson.
Located in the Section 7 of the said republic act, powers, functions and responsibilities were
mentioned. To administer, implement, and enforce the national government's regulatory policies
governing the regulation and licensing of the various professions and occupations under its
jurisdiction, including the enhancement and maintenance of professional and occupational standards
and ethics, as well as the enforcement of rules and regulations governing those standards and ethics,
the execution and implementation of its tasks, as well as the enhancement of its service, by doing
any and all actions, entering into contracts, making such rules and regulations, and issuing such
orders and other administrative procedures as may be necessary.
Manipulation and other corrupt acts in the performance of professional examinations are also
punishable. Any person who tampers with the grades in professional licensure examinations, secretly
informs or makes known licensure examination questions prior to the conduct of the examination,
or manipulates or rigs licensure examination results shall be punished by imprisonment for not less
than six (6) years and one (1) day to not more than twelve (12) years or a fine of not less than Fifty
thousand pesos (P50,000.00) to not more than One hundred thousand pesos if convicted. In
addition to the penalties stipulated in the previous section of this Act, if the perpetrator is an officer
or employee of the Commission or a member of the regulatory board, he or she must be removed
from office and face a penalty of lifelong absolute disqualification from public office. The
conspirators will face a sentence ranging from four (4) years and one (1) day to six (6) years in jail or
a fine ranging from twenty thousand pesos (P20,000.00) to not more than forty-nine thousand pesos
(P49,000.00), or both, at the discretion of the court. The accessory will face a sentence ranging from
two (2) years and one (1) day to four (4) years in jail or a fine ranging from five thousand pesos
(P5,000.00) to not more than nineteen thousand pesos (P19,000.00), or both, at the discretion of the
court.

Republic 8981 is very important because the commission is responsible for establishing and
maintaining a high quality of admission to all professions, as well as ensuring and safeguarding the
integrity of all licensure tests at all times.
