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.

Public Advisory from the Professional Regulatory Board of Optometry on Unauthorized Optometric Practice

Pursuant to Section 41 of the Resolution No. 01 (s 2008) or the Implementing Rules and Regulation (IRR) of Republic Act (RA) No. 8050 or the Revised Optometry Law of 1995, the practice of optometry shall only be in premises used exclusively for optometric practice such as a regular clinic/office. Thus, an optometrist is PROHIBITED to examine patients outside the regular office/clinic and / or to use mobile units for the purpose of examining, dispensing, or selling eyeglasses or other visual aids unless with permission from the national or local health officials and/or the Accredited Integrated Professional Organization.

The Professional Regulatory Board of Optometry reminds all optometry practitioners that the commission of any of the prohibited acts shall be punished with imprisonment, or a fine, or both at the discretion of the court, in addition to administrative penalties provided by RA No. 8050.

To ensure delivery of quality eye care, the public are advised to visit optometry clinics that are compliant to RA No. 8050 and its IRR, with the Standards on Clinical Practice and have established strict health measures and clinical protocols, such as but not limited to prescribed routine disinfection of instruments and facilities.
