Ensuring Impartiality and Fairness

The Public Service Commission is an independent statutory body set up in 1950 under the Public Service Commission Ordinance responsible for advising the Chief Executive on civil service appointment, promotion and disciplinary matters to ensure impartiality and fairness. The Chairman and Members of the Commission are appointed by the Chief Executive. In accordance with the Public Service Commission Ordinance, advice of the Commission has to be sought for appointment or promotion of officers to some 48,500 (as at 31 March 2020) middle and senior ranking posts, excluding the judiciary and the disciplined ranks of the Hong Kong Police Force. The Commission is also consulted on changes in appointment procedures applicable to civil service posts at all ranks and may initiate proposals for change.
