Due to the inadvertent use of the word "MISINTERPRETATION" instead of "MISREPRESENTATION" in the INSTRUCTION portion of the Personal Data Sheet (PDS) (CS Form No. 212, Revised 2017) uploaded on March 22, 2017, the CSC requests the use of the latest version of the PDS now posted in the website under Issuances (Memorandum Circular).
Only those who have not submitted their PDS as of 20 April 2017 need to accomplish the latest version.
For the guidance of all concerned, the PDS should be administered by the highest-ranking HRMO or any authorized officer of the agency. Lastly, the full and handwritten name tag on the passport size picture to be used in the PDS should be in the following format: First Name, Middle Initial, Last Name and name extension (if any) with signature over printed name.
