In relation to the MOU on the Sending of Workers between the Ministry of Employment and Labor of the Republic of Korea (MOEL) and the Department of Labor and Employment of the Philippines, the 8th Test of Proficiency in Korean [EPS-TOPIK] in the Philippines is to be conducted as follows:
All job seekers who want to work in Korea under the Employment Permit System must pass EPS-TOPIK, implemented by the Human Resources Development Service of Korea (HRD Korea) authorized by the MOEL in cooperation with the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration, and only those who passed the test will be uploaded for transfer to the roster of available workers by submitting the job application for the EPS.
