The National Telecommunications Commission of the Philippines (NTC) issued a memorandum order on extending of the validity for the permits, certificates, and licenses. The NTC took such decision in the interest of public service. According to the Order, all existing radio operator certificates, permits, certificates, and licenses to operate communications equipment, networks, and facilities, public, government or private, in various radio services issued by the NTC with validity period ending from March 22, 2021 to June 30,2021 will continue to be valid until August 31, 2021.
It means that holders of the above-mentioned certificates, permits, and licenses should apply for the renewal of their certificates, permits and licenses until August 31,2021. In this case, they do not need to pay any penalties or surcharges. Otherwise, appropriate penalties will be collected.
