Multi-Purpose NBI Clearance to be Issued Soon
Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez proposal that the National Bureau of INVESTIGATION (NBI) to issue only one “multi-purpose clearance” for all types of requests, following significant reforms will be implemented soon
Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez proposed that the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) will be soon issuing only one “multi-purpose clearance” for all types of requests, following significant reforms. Alvarez said that Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II, who has administrative control over the NBI, had issued a directive for the purpose of issuing the new multi-purpose clearance. The old practice of issuing different clearances for specific purposes, the usual separate applications for domestic employment, travel abroad, gun licensing and many others, will be replaced with a single clearance to be used in all of the transactions requiring the NBI clearance, making it easier for people to obtain and use it. The NBI is directed to change the format of all NBI clearances to bear the phrase “Issued for whatever legal purpose” instead of an specific purpose. The NBI is also ordered to replace all existing formats with the new multi-purpose clearance as stated under the new circular. Last Feb. 15, DOJ Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre issued a Department Circular 017, directing NBI Director Dante Gierran to scrap the present specific-purpose clearance and instead issue a multi-purpose clearance. According to Alvarez, the proposed reform will not only spare the people from difficulties of getting the NBI clearance but it can also save time and money. Department Circular 017 Issued by the DOJ The implementation of the new multi-purpose NBI clearance will begin 15 days after appropriate notices have been published in at least two publications or newspapers of general circulation. Alvarez had also asked the NBI to modernize its system not only to increase efficiency but also to address other problems in the clearance procedures in addition to implementing a multi-purpose clearance.
