Briefing on COMPASS by Ministry of Manpower

27 July 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

PSB Academy Main Wing @ Marina Square

The Chamber hosted a briefing by the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) on its Complementarity Assessment Framework (COMPASS) on 27 July 2023. Given COMPASS will come into effect from 1 September 2023, this briefing was designed to help members better understand the framework and enable them to ask questions.

From September this year Employment Pass (EP) applications will involve a two-stage eligibility framework: stage 1 is meeting the qualifying salary and stage 2 is passing the points-based COMPASS framework. MOM will shortly release two guidebooks – Shortage Occupations List (SOL) Employer Guidebook and COMPASS Guidebook – to help businesses better navigate the EP application process with ease and certainty.

MOM delivered a very informative presentation that provided a recap of COMPASS as well as recent updates on the framework. This was followed by the Q & A segment. Most questions were on the use of the framework.

We would like to extend our thanks to the MOM team for their time, advice and insights and to our audience for a very productive morning. Last, but not least, we would like to thank Chamber member PSB Academy for providing us an event space at their campus so we could hold this key dialogue.
