According to Section 37 of the Implementing Rules and Regulations of the Chemistry Profession Act of 2015, each registered chemist must obtain his/her own chemist seal. This is to be used in certifying documents such as results of testing analyses, certification reports, and other official papers coming out of a chemical laboratory.
NOTE: The ICP is the only entity authorized by the Professional Regulation Commission to accept orders for the registered chemist seal. Registered chemists who wish to purchase their own chemist seal must place their orders only through the ICP using the form below. The ICP calls on all registered chemists to abide by the Code of Ethics of the Chemistry Profession and NOT engage in the purchasing of chemist seals through unauthorized entities or illegal means.
• The physical aspects of the chemist seal are as follows:
