Announcement: Replacement of the NSO by the PSA

Republic Act No. 10625 (Philippine Statistical Act of 2013) was signed into law by President Benigno S. Aquino III on 12 September 2013.  The law’s Implementing Rules and Regulations took effect on 29 December 2013.

It merged the National Statistics Office (NSO), National Statistical Coordination Board (NSCB), Bureau of Labor and Employment Statistics (BLES) and the Bureau of Agricultural Statistics (BAS) into the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA).

PSA shall serve as the central statistical authority of the Philippine Government. It shall also administer the civil registration functions provided under Act No. 3753 (Law on Registry of Civil Status).

All civil registry documents (i.e. birth certificate/ROB, marriage certificate/ROM, death certificate/ROD, CENOMAR) are now issued by the PSA. However, until the full merger of the abovementioned agencies, these certifications may still be obtained from the NSO.
