What is a 'selection board'?

Question categories:

Each selection procedure for permanent officials has its own Selection Board, which is responsible for selecting candidates at each stage and for drawing up the final list of successful candidates. Each Selection Board is composed of officials from the EU Institutions, and generally consists of Permanent Members and Non-permanent members. The Permanent Members are seconded to EPSO from their institution usually for 2 to 4 years in order to ensure consistency across the selection procedures. The Non-permanent Members are appointed to a particular selection procedure for their technical or linguistic expertise, for example.
