ABOUT THE COMMISSIONER

comm-nicanor-faeldon-5-of-5

Nicanor Escalano Faeldon is the 38th commissioner of the Bureau of Customs (BOC).  He assumed office on June 30, 2016 after he was appointed to the position by the newly-elected President Rodrigo Roa Duterte.

Born on July 29, 1965 in Batanes province, Faeldon dreamt of becoming a soldier when he was still young.  His parents, both educators, however, did not approve of it.  Instead, he took up a Political Science course at National University and graduated in 1989.

Determined to pursue his original ambition, he enrolled in military courses after graduating from college. He was called to active duty at the Philippine Marines in 1992.

While in the Marine Corps, Faeldon carved an enviable reputation by winning several awards: a Gold Cross Medal, 3 Military Merit Medals, 5 Military Commendation Medals, a Wounded Personnel Medal, and medals for a distinguished record in military campaigns in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.

His simple dream to join the military service has grown into a passion to serve the country.

Faeldon is the brains behind Pilipino.org which is aimed at creating “a greater national consciousness to achieve nationhood”, and Kalayaan Atin Ito, which asserts the country’s sovereign rights over the West Philippine Sea.

He has also made the rounds of various schools to encourage students to join in fighting corruption in the government.

It is the same fight that he hopes to bring to the BOC, which is often regarded as one of the most corrupt agencies in the Philippine bureaucracy.

Today, Faeldon, along with his trusted men, is at the forefront in the drive to restore the people’s confidence in the BOC by instituting reforms to weed out corruption and improve the  delivery of services at the agency
