In light of the declaration of the World Health Organization (WHO) of Corona Virus Disease (Covid-19) outbreak as pandemic, and pursuant to Proclamation No. 922 declaring a State of Public Health Emergency throughout the Philippines due to Covid-19, and upon the recommendation of the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) for the Management of Infectious Diseases for the lock-down of Metro Manila from 15 March 2020 to 14 April 2020, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) hereby adopts alternative work arrangements and functions in skeletal workforce. This is a precautionary measure to ensure the health and well-being of our personnel and the transacting public.
With this, the FDA Electronic Portal (ePortal) System will only be available on Mondays to Fridays from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM starting 16 March 2020 until further notice. FDA stakeholders are strongly advised to process all electronic applications during the said time.
We seek the understanding and full cooperation of everyone as we do our share in ensuring continuity of government service and the safety of everyone.
Thank you very much.
