Philippine Standard Geographic Code (PSGC)

No PSGC Update for the 1st Quarter of 2019

There are no changes in the Philippine Standard Geographic Code (PSGC) in the first quarter of 2019 (January to March, 2019). Despite the enactment of Republic Act No. 11054 otherwise known as “Organic Law for the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM)”, changes in the PSGC are not yet reflected pending the issuance of the Implementing Rules and Regulation (IRR) of Republic Act No. 11054 that would clearly define the territorial jurisdiction of the BARMM. This was the recommendation of the Technical Working Group on Geographic Code (TWGGC) consisting of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG), Commission on Elections (COMELEC), Land Management Bureau (LMB), National Mapping and Resource Information Authority (NAMRIA), and the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA).

No PSGC Update for the 4th Quarter of 2018

There were no changes in the geographical-political units of the country during the fourth quarter of 2018 (01 October – 31 December 2018), hence, there were no submitted updates on the Philippine Standard Geographic Code (PSGC) during the quarter. Consequently, the total number of regions, provinces, cities, municipalities, and barangays remained the same with the PSGC updates as of 30 September 2018.
