Appointment of the new Director General of EPPO

As agreed by Council in September 2004, EPPO is beginning the recruitment procedure for the new Director General due to be appointed in January 2006. The procedure is as follows:

  • Candidates should submit their applications to the Secretariat not later than 2005-01-31. Any application received after this deadline will not be considered.
  • Applications should be submitted by the candidates themselves.
  • Applications will be examined by the Executive Committee in April 2005 and a short list will be constituted. The new Director-General will be elected from the short list of pre-selected candidates at the Council session in September 2005.

It is stressed that, since candidates apply directly, NPPOs should not apply on behalf of a candidate. Letters of support for candidates will not be taken into consideration. More than one candidate may apply from a country.

The terms of appointment of the Director General can be obtained from the EPPO Secretariat or from the EPPO website: http://www.eppo.org/News&Events/director.htm
