The House committee on information and communications technology, chaired by Rep. Victor Yap has approved a substitute bill, seeking the establishment of a No Calls and No Text Registration System to protect phone subscribers from solicited calls and spam text messages.
Under the bill, the National Privacy Commission shall have the responsibility to establish a “No Calls and No Text Registry” system. The system shall ensure to keep the identity and privacy of the persons registered highly confidential. As such, only their telephone numbers may be accessed from the registry.
