Guidelines on suitability standards

This part of the handbook gives guidelines on the way in which the standards for assessing suitability can specifically be implemented, although they are not intended to be exhaustive.

The main principle which needs to be remembered is that the suitability screening involves a process of in-depth assessment designed, using various kinds of relevant information, to give as full as possible an image of the suitability of person for a specific position. Assessments dealing firstly with a person’s fitness and secondly his or her propriety are complementary.
