Expert Person Public appointment and swearing-in application

The purpose of the public appointment and swearing-in for/the expert is to provide courts, authorities and the public with particularly competent and personally appropriate experts.

If you are entitled to hold the professional title "engineer" or "engineer", you can apply to the Lower Saxony Chamber of Engineers for a public appointment and swearing-in to the expert. Your reliability and integrity (personal suitability) will be checked before ordering. In an official ordering procedure, the demanding proof of special expertise in a particular field of engineering must be provided. This refers to above-average expertise and experience. If you have already obtained a Special Certificate of Expertise in a specific field of engineering in an EU, EEA or equivalent country, this can be recognised. If the content of this differs substantially from the requirements of a domestic area of engineering, an aptitude test or adaptation course may be imposed on you.

In addition, you must prove that you have the ability to assess and that you have knowledge of German expert law. They must also speak the German language in word and writing, and the official and judicial language is German. You will be sworn to carry out your duties independently, without instructions, personally, conscientiously and impartially, and to provide the expert opinions you have requested to the best of your knowledge and belief.
