Military Adjusts Conscript Body Composition Standards 役男體位將修正 未滿155㎝才能免役

The Ministry of National Defense has provided advance notice of changes to body composition standards for conscripts. It said the new standards are in response to combat evolution and reserve requirements.


The Ministry of National Defense has provided advance notice of changes to body composition standards for conscripts. The changes will mean that fewer males are exempt from military service. They will also expand the draft pool. Previously, those whose single-eye vision was corrected by 0.1 or under and those with eye diopters of over 11 after mydriasis were exempt. Now, there is a new provision of "optimal corrected vision does not reach 0.6." Previously, those with a BMI over 31.5 were exempt. Now, only those with a BMI of over 35 are exempt. The minimum height requirement has also been lowered from 157 cm to 155 cm.
 
I mentioned to the Foreign and National Defense Committee that I hoped the Ministry of National Defense could conduct an evaluation of the overall sources of troops and body-related health, so we're happy to see that the Ministry of National Defense has responded quickly.
 
The moderate relaxation of restrictions at this moment allows for greater fairness and increased sources of troops. I think it's quite appropriate.
 
Legislators were for the most part happy to see the changes, saying a relaxation of restrictions will allow more people to learn basic combat skills. Related issues can also be discussed in the legislature after the draft bill is released.
 
The main objectives are to respond to combat evolution and to uphold the principle of fairness in military service. We had to make appropriate adjustments based on current societal requirements and positions.
 
The ministry convened discussions with the National Conscription Agency, training units, and medical associations before adjusting the standards. It has not yet made a final decision. It will collect feedback during a period of 60 days and then hold further discussions.
 
 
 
國防部預告修正"役男 體位區分標準",將進一步緊縮免役標準,擴大兵源,根據草案新規定,近視免役,原先一眼矯正視力0.1以下,散瞳後驗光度數逾十一屈光度,修正後要加上「最佳矯正視力未達零點六者」,BMI原先大於31.5,修正為大於35,免役身高也從157公分下修為未滿155公分。 
 
國民黨立委 李德維表示:「我在國防委員會裡面,也提出來希望國防部,能夠針對整體的兵源,跟整體相關的民眾的健康,來做一些評估。那我們也樂見、看到國防部,也快速的回應。」
 
民進黨立委 趙天麟表示:「所以這個時候,適度的放寬,讓公平性跟兵源,可以更加的擴大。我覺得是滿適切的,」
 
朝野立委對於役男體位標準做調整,大多持正面態度,認為放寬可以從事基本戰鬥訓練的義務役標準,讓更多人具備基本戰鬥訓練能力,應屬適切,相關議題將來也可在草案推出後,在國會討論。
 
 國防部發言人 史順文表示:「主要來是因為作戰型態已經改變,還有基於兵役公平性的原則。那符合我們現在目前的一個社會氛圍,以及態勢,必須做一個適當的調整。」
 
國防部初步召集內政部役政署、訓練單位,以及各專科醫學會研討後,暫訂調整役男體位區分標準,但尚未定案,修正草案將公告六十天,期間廣蒐各方意見,後續再召集相關單位研討。
