Mandatory SIM Card Registration

Republic Act No. 11934, or the SIM Card Registration Act, was signed into law on October 10, 2022 to help curb scams and other crimes and on December 12,  National Telecommunications Commission released its implementing rules and regulations requiring all Filipinos to register their SIM cards within 180 days from the effectivity of the law. However, this measure could lead to data breaches and privacy violations, and have an impact on women’s rights

Meanwhile, the advocacy group Junk SIM Registration Network warned that the implementing rules and regulations (IRR) of the law failed to include alternative means for individuals without proof of identity, reflecting what it described as the law’s “anti-people nature.”
