February 1, 2012 to February 29, 2012
Pursuant to Presidential Proclamation No. 682, signed by then President Corazon Aquino on 28 January 1991, celebration of Civil Registration Month is observed this February.
Relative to the event, February 23 of every year is observed as Universal Birth Registration Day as declared by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. It will be noted that birth records may be used in claiming some inheritance, training ancestry, and establishment of an identity, to name a few.
For an effective implementation of the civil registration, the local government units, the church, the different government and non-government organizations are urged to work hand-in-hand with the Local Civil Registrars to make this endeavor a fruitful one.
