Welcome to the website of the Commission for Public Service Appointments
The Commission is Ireland’s regulator for public service recruitment.
Our primary statutory responsibility is to set standards for recruitment and selection, which we publish as Codes of Practice. We safeguard these standards through regular monitoring and auditing of recruitment and selection activities.
The legislation establishing the Commission and governing its work is the Public Service Management (Recruitment and Appointments) Act 2004.

The Commission prepares a short report detailing the outcome of each audit and evaluation process and, where appropriate, includes recommendations to address any area for improvement identified during the exercise.
