Submit an application for public appointment and swearing-in as an expert, along with the required documents/evidence. As a rule, the competent authority will decide on your application on the basis of the evidence you have submitted. Depending on the area of responsibility, an examination appointment can also be scheduled before an independent expert committee, during which your specialist knowledge will be queried and evaluated. The competent authority will decide on your application and inform you of its decision. Upon receipt of the application documents, the office checks them for formal completeness and forwards the documents to the BBIK Committee of Experts. The review of the appointment requirements, as well as the personal suitability of the applicant and the fulfillment of the minimum requirements for the submitted expert opinions is carried out by the Committee of Experts of the BBIK. The application documents and the submitted expert opinions are examined and the applicant is invited to a personal interview with the Committee of Experts. In the event of a positive assessment, the application documents will be forwarded to a competent expert committee for the verification of special expertise. There, the review of the expert opinions is checked for their technical correctness and traceability. In the event of a positive result of the expert review by the expert committee, an oral expert discussion will take place. If the applicant is aware of the "special expertise" in the examinations, the appointing body will be informed of a corresponding vote. In the event of a negative vote, the application procedure ends here. If, in summary, there are positive results of the review of the "Personal Suitability", the "Minimum Requirements for Expert Opinions" and the "Special Expertise", the Committee of Experts will make a recommendation to the Board of Directors of BBIK to carry out the public appointment and swearing-in. The public appointment and swearing-in is carried out by the President of the BBIK. In all other cases, the Committee of Experts of the BBIK shall recommend either the deferral or rejection of the application for public appointment and swearing-in as an expert. The applicant shall receive a notification to that request.
