UPDATED 2022: PRC List of Allowed Calculator Models

In October 2019, the Professional Regulation Commission issued Memorandum Circular No. 21 (S 2009) in accordance with its powers under RA No. 8981, prescribing the updated list of nonprogrammable calculators permitted to be used in licensure examinations. However, after reviewing the list, the Professional Regulation Board of Civil Engineering determined that many of the calculators listed under MC No. 21 (s. 2009) lack algebraic logic and trigonometric functions, rendering them insufficient for civil engineering licensure examinations. Some of the models listed are incorrect, non-existent, duplicated, or vintage, and still include the prohibited Casio fx 991ES / ES Plus, confusing readers.

The Professional Regulation Board of Civil Engineering issued PRB Resolution No. 02 Series of 2020 to address this issue. The resolution called for an updated list of non-programmable calculators allowed in civil engineering board examinations. This Resolution was first implemented during the May 2020 Civil Engineer Licensure Examination.
