The Commissioner for Public Appointments

The Code of Practice

The Code of Practice (April 2012) sets out the regulatory framework for public appointments processes within the Commissioner’s remit. The Code is based on three core principles – merit, openness and fairness – and sets out the essential requirements for meeting those principles.

Please see our archived documents for the provisions contained in the Code of Practice (August 2009) that apply to appointments which commenced prior to 1 April 2012.
