THE Philippine Ports Authority (PPA) Commercial Services Department (CSD) recently completed a book which compiles all the port agency’s rules and regulations issued in 2003.

Entitled “Port Rules and Regulations 2003,” the book carries forward the PPA’s objective of ensuring efficiency and enhancing business transactions at the port, the port agency noted.

“It is likewise in consonance with the national government’s objective of making all government activities and transactions transparent and easy to understand,” it explained.

Other government agencies

The book contains relevant issuances from other government agencies related to port rules and regulations. For instance, it contains Executive Orders, House of Representative Resolutions and Civil Service issuances that are related or influence the adoption of certain rules within the PPA.

The material is arranged by subject matter, then by the date and number of issuance. At the bottom of each issuance is the effectivity date of the regulation, the name of the newspapers of general circulation where they were published, and the date of publication.

The 132-paged book is also available in CD-ROM.

The PPA-CSD is in the process of completing a new book entitled “Philippine Ports: Gateways to Maritime Trade” to sell the port facilities and services of the country’s three major ports – the Manila International Container Terminal, the South Harbor and the port of Batangas. – Maritess R. Mesias
