President Ferdinand "Bongbong" R. Marcos Jr. urged the Philippine Statistics Authorityon Tuesday, December 6, to expedite the printing of the digitalized version of the National ID or the Philippine Identification System (PhilSys) ID.

During a meeting with NEDA Secretary Arsenio Balisacan and PSA officials, the chief executive suggested printing out as many digital IDs as the PSA is able to process and then following that up with the release of the physical IDs as soon as possible.

The printing capacity was also discussed during the executive meeting.  Some of the issues that were brought up included the delayed start of the data flow and the volume of data that was lower than what was anticipated.

The chief executive officer was informed that the problem with data flow from the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) to the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) had been fixed.

PSA Undersecretary Dennis Mapa stated that his agency is working with the BSP to speed up and increase Phil ID production and printing volume.

The PSA chief previously blamed the delay in printing national ID cards on an influx of registrants in the PhilSys system. PSA began implementing the printed digital version of the Phil ID in October.

According to PSA, registered individuals can immediately use the benefits of PhilSys through the printed Phil ID, such as faster and seamless transactions in accessing financial and social protection services requiring proof of identity, subject to authentication.
