Port office of Surigao launches online system for scheduling, accreditation

SURIGAO CITY, Surigao del Norte -- In a move to streamline the operational processes of the ports and anchored on the policy of ease of doing business, the Port Management Office of Surigao launched its Online Appointment and Scheduling System during the 4th Quarter Port Management Advisory Council (PMAC) Meeting on December 4.

This innovative system enabled clients to efficiently schedule appointments with the PMO’s Marketing and Business Development Unit, particularly when applying for accreditation as a port service provider and permit to operate (PTO) port ancillary services.

The timing of this launch was significant since a number of existing PTOs and accreditation certificates registered under PMO Surigao are set to expire on December 31, 2023. Anticipating a surge in clients seeking to renew accreditation certificates and PTOs, PMO Surigao expects to handle a substantial workload.

Current regulations stipulated that all PTOs and accreditation certificate holders must initiate the renewal process within 60 days before expiration. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in delays or even disruptions to their operations. 

To take advantage of this streamlined service, clients are advised to visit the official PMO Surigao website at: www.ppasurigao.weebly.com  preferably using the Microsoft Edge browser for best results. From there, they can access the link for the Online Appointment System to expedite the application and/or renewal process. 

While walk-in applicants will continue to be accommodated, clients with pre-scheduled appointments generated through the Online Appointment System will be given priority. (PPA-PMO-Surigao/PIA-Surigao del Norte)
