The classification review consists of the classification research that looks into individual inmate's personal information and the classification examination that conducts personality, intelligence and aptitude test. Inmates are classified in different treatment levels for facilities, custody and work. In addition, regular and irregular reviews are carried out through their prison terms to adjust the treatment levels according to the degree of improvement of the inmates.
