(NAR) VOL. 5 NO. 3 / JULY - SEPTEMBER 1994

[ PRC BOARD OF CHEMISTRY RESOLUTION NO. 08, s. 1994, September 13, 1994 ]


WHEREAS, Sec. 15, Art. II of R.A. No. 382, "An Act Regulating the Practice of Chemistry in the Philippines", states the subjects in the examination;

WHEREAS, the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) issued Memo Cir. No. 08, Series of 1992; Memo. Cir. No. 93-03, Series of 1993; and Memo Cir. No. 94-01, Series of 1994, directing the Professional Regulatory Boards to prescribe and adopt a syllabus for every subject in the licensure examination;

WHEREAS, every syllabus of an examination subject containing the concepts/topics with the corresponding level of knowledge or proficiency shall be the basis for the questions that will be inputted into the question bank for computerization; and,

WHEREAS a syllabus for a subject will not bring about overlapping of subjects and will accordingly guide the Board Member, the examinee, and the reviewer,

NOW, THEREFORE, by virtue of its quasi-legislative (rule-making) power under R.A. No. 4209, the Board hereby RESOLVED, as it now so RESOLVES, to formulate, prescribe, adopt, and promulgate the syllabi of the subjects in the Chemistry licensure examination (Annex "A").

FURTHER, RESOLVED, that this Resolution, upon its approval by the Commission, shall be effective after fifteen (15) days following its publication in the Official Gazette or any newspaper of general circulation, whichever is earlier.

FINALLY, RESOLVED, that this resolution shall be widely disseminated and circularized to all colleges/schools offering the course of Chemistry.

Adopted: 13 Sept. 1994
