Your application for public appointment and swearing-in to the expert depends on the following conditions: There must be a general need for expert assistance in the field you have designated. What is irrelevant in this context is how many experts already exist in the field in question. On the contrary, it depends solely on whether the subject area is of general importance. In the case of a subject area for which experts have already been appointed in the past, the general need has already been accepted in the affirmative and must therefore be presupped. You must prove your special expertise in the subject area you have designated, i.e. They must have above-average knowledge, experience and skills in the relevant field. In addition to evidence in the form of documents to be provided to you (certificates, self-prepared opinions, references, etc.), participation in an examination before an independent expert panel made up of experts is also considered. Finally, you must have the necessary personal aptitude. Your personal suitability is to be assumed if you can offer the guarantee that your expert services will be provided impartially, independently, objectively and in a manner understandable to the client. There can also be no doubt about your personal reliability and integrity. This presupposes that you have so far behaved in accordance with the law and live in orderly economic conditions.

Submit an application for public appointment and swearing-in to the expert, along with the necessary documents/evidence. As a rule, the competent body decides on your application on the basis of the evidence you have provided. Depending on your responsibilities, an examination date can also be arranged before an independent expert panel, during which your expertise will be queried and evaluated. The competent authority will decide on your application and inform you of your 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 examination of the appointment requirements, as well as the personal suitability of the applicant and the fulfilment of the minimum requirements for the submitted opinion, shall be carried out by the BBIK Committee of Experts. The application documents and the opinions submitted will be examined and the applicant will be invited to a personal meeting with the Committee of Experts. If the assessment is positive, the application documents will be forwarded to a competent expert panel for the review of the Special Expertise.
