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.

Respiratory Therapy Law IRR effective January 22, 2013

Manila, January 2013 – Beginning January 22, 2013, the Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of Republic Act No.10024, known as the “Philippine Respiratory Act of 2009”, will be enforced, according to the Professional Regulatory Board of Respiratory Therapy.

The IRR issued by the Board of Respiratory Therapy under Resolution No.3 dated December 10, 2012 was published last January 7, 2013 in the Official Gazette.

The rules and regulations implement R.A. No. 10024 which regulates the practice of respiratory therapy in the Philippines to nurture competent, upright and assiduous respiratory therapists whose standards of professional practice are excellent and globally competitive and to protect the public from inexperienced or untrained individuals offering respiratory therapy services.

Those found violating the provisions of R.A. No. 10024 or the IRR may be meted imprisonment of not less than six months, at the discretion of the court or a fine of not less than twenty thousand pesos (PhP20,000.00).
