The Members of the ECA are appointed by the Council, after consultation with the European Parliament, following nomination by their respective Member State governments. Members are appointed for a renewable term of six years. They are required to perform their duties in complete independence and in the general interest of the European Union.
As well as being part of the college, Members are assigned to one of the five Chambers, each specialising in different policy areas. These Chambers adopt most audit reports and opinions.
Each Member also has responsibility for specific tasks, primarily in the field of audit. The audit work leading to a report is carried out by the Chamber’s auditors. The Member presents the report to the Chamber and/or full Court for adoption, and then to the European Parliament and other relevant institutional stakeholders, as well as to the media.
