I’ve not managed to locate an example of an identifier issued by ‘Securities and Exchange Commission Philippines’. Have you any example IDs?
From what I can find, the search service only allows you to find register names, not numbers.
Open Corporates look at the Philippine Business Registry as their potential source of company registration, but note that this does not appear to issue a company registration number. Both the PBR and SEC search services are searches on names, not numbers.
This source suggests there may have been a project to create a Philippine Business Number, but I can’t find any other mentions of this, and other documentation on business registration in the Philippines suggests that a certificate of business name is issued, but not a number.
If the research above is correct, this gives us a few options:
(1) Rule out PH-SEC as an identifier, as there is no clear value to suffix onto it;
(2) Propose a replacement pattern for converting registered names into identifiers
If may be that the certificates issued to companies do include a number - but we would need to provide people with clear guidance on how to get hold of this.
