Through the Special Licensure Board Examination (SPLBE) offered by the PRC, Filipinos based overseas can take state-recognized licensure examinations without having to come back to the Philippines for this purpose. The SPLBE, which is state-certified and overseas-based, is made possible through Republic Act No. 8981, or the Philippine Regulatory Commission (PRC) Modernization Act of 2000, and Executive Order No. 835. The SPLBE was first implemented back in October, 2009.

Based on the 2018 PRC guidelines, OFWs are required to submit their applications for the SPLBE through overseas professional organizations. On the other hand, they may also submit their application personally at the Philippine embassy or consulates through the Philippine Overseas Labour Office (POLOs) they are assigned to.

After applications have been filed, the Philippine embassies or POLOs will forward the number of the pre-registered applicants to the PRC at least 90 days or 3 months before the planned examination date/s.

The PRC and the Professional Regulatory Boards (PRBs) will determine the appropriate date/s and venue/s for the examination based on the demographic distribution of the pre-registered applicants before these are communicated to the respective embassies, consulates, and POLOs, which can also send in their proposals for possible venues to be utilized.

Interested applicants may secure application forms for the SPLBE and check information on the upcoming SPLBEs offered in their region at the PRC website or through their respective consular offices.

Congratulations to the newly-licensed environmental planners! We hope that, by passing the SPLBE, you can put your knowledge and skills to good use and make your kababayan all over the world, and most especially your country proud with your contributions in developing and protecting our environment.
