The iGovPhil Project officially adopts the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0) as the accessibility standard for all its related web development and services. WCAG 2.0 is also an international standard, ISO 40500. This certifies it as a stable and referenceable technical standard.

WCAG 2.0 contains 12 guidelines organized under 4 principles: Perceivable, Operable, Understandable, and Robust (POUR for short). There are testable success criteria for each guideline. Compliance to these criteria is measured in three levels: A, AA, or AAA. A guide to understanding and implementing Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 is available at:

All iGovPhil Project services and content are currently moving towards WCAG Level A compliance. Work is being done to make the system fully compliant with this level.

PRC Successfully Conducts Computer-Based Licensure Examination for Geologists

The Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) successfully conducted the Computer-Based Licensure Examination (CBLE) for the Geology profession last December 27, 28, and 29, 2021. Accelerated by the Covid-19 pandemic which has posted unprecedented challenges in the country's licensure examination system, the PRC primarily through its Information and Communications Technology Service and Licensure Office developed its in-house CBLE system compliant with current technical and security requirements of specific professional regulatory laws and stakeholders.

With a specific schedule and venue, the three-day CBLE was conducted in Manila among one hundred forty-two (142) examinees that reported. Other CBLEs with this feature are also scheduled in the first quarter of 2022.

CBLEs “on-demand”, that is, at any venue and at any time, are also being contemplated, depending on the applicable rules, acceptable technology, and available resources for the profession.

The CBLE seeks to further enhance the efficiency and integrity in the administration of the licensure examinations for competent and competitive professionals needed by the services sector in the country and overseas.
