Why did EPSO introduce remotely proctored computer-based tests?

Beginning of July 2021, EPSO introduced remotely proctored computer-based tests for specific competitions and tests.

Remote test proctoring via our contractor Prometric’s ProProctor application enables candidates to sit the tests from any location while maintaining the integrity of the tests.

Remote test proctoring allows EPSO to progress faster with competition organisation.

It offers greater flexibility and cost-effectiveness and is also particularly relevant in the context of the pandemic situation, where attendance at test centres may present significant challenges due to public health measures such as travel restrictions and lockdowns in certain countries, also entailing closure of test centres.
