ONAR Bulletin
 

The Office of the National Administrative Register of the UP Law Center is the country’s official repository of all the rules and regulations issued by the different agencies of the Philippine Government. The ONAR found a home in the UPLC in 1987, pursuant to Sec. 3, Book VII of the Administrative Code of 1987 (E.O. 292), which requires every agency in the government to file with the office every rule adopted by it for its effectivity.

Since 1990, the ONAR has published the National Administrative Register (NAR), a quarterly bulletin apprising the public of the adoption of new rules and regulations. Attached to ONAR is the Printing Section which serves as UPLC’s in-house press, making it responsible for the printing and publishing of all UP Law Complex books and other publications, as well as all materials needed in researches, seminars and training programs.

In line with their function as the central repository of all administrative rules and regulations, ONAR is mandated to do the following:

  1. Publish a quarterly bulletin setting forth the text of rules filed with it during the preceding quarter;
  2. Keep an up-to-date and permanent codification of all rules thus published and remaining in effect, together with a complete index and appropriate tables that is open to the public for inspection; and
  3. Furnish one free copy of each of every issue of the bulletin and of the codified rules or supplements to the Office of the President, Congress, all appellate courts, the National Library, and such other agencies that Congress may select

Only properly certified rules, regulations, and issuances adopted by government agencies within the definition provided for in the Administrative Code of 1987 are require to file with ONAR. Generally, those in scope will be general or of permanent character.
