    Executive Order provides for compulsory registration by natural and legal persons owning land, in order to permit valuation of the property in case it should be acquired by the Government for purposes of agrarian reform.

For lands with multiple beneficiaries, ownership of whole parcels or estates may be transferred collectively or individually, as the beneficiaries prefer. The Department of Agrarian Reform is granted quasi-judicial powers to determine and adjudicate agrarian reform matters; its decisions have immediate effect but may be appealed to the regional trial courts. The Presidential Agrarian Reform Council, of which the Secretary of Labor and Employment is a member, is to co-ordinate implementation of the programme. The Order reiterates constitutional principles, including the right of farmers and regular farmworkers who are landless to own directly or collectively the lands they till, and respect for prior rights, homestead rights of small settlers and the rights of indigenous communities to their ancestral lands. Persons or associations who prematurely enter the land to avail themselves of rights and benefits under the Order shall be permanently disqualified.
