NAVFORCEN

BRIEF HISTORY

Naval Forces Central derived its origin from the Central Philippines Naval Support Activity or CPNSA which was activated on 26 October 1977 to provide logistics and service support to Philippine Navy Units operating within its area of responsibility covering the Central Visayas Regions.

On 15 June 1980, CPNSA was renamed Central Philippines Naval Facility or CPNF and on 22 May 1987, CPNF was redesignated as Naval District V together with six (6) other Naval Districts.

In line with the Philippine Navy’s modernization and streamlining, Naval District III in Legazpi City and Naval District V in Cebu City were deactivated on 21 September 1996 and subsequently merged into what is now the Naval Forces Central or NAVFORCEN.

On 04 October 2002 when Naval Forces Southern Luzon was activated, it absorbed the area of responsibility of NAVFORCEN that comprises the Southern Tagalog and Bicol Regions and the Island Provinces of Mindoro, Masbate, and Romblon. These were former areas of responsibility of defunct Naval District III. Likewise, Naval Station Legaspi was absorbed as an organic unit of NAVFORSOL leaving the former area of responsibility of defunct Naval District V as the area of responsibility of NAVFORCEN.
