Since its establishment, the Commission has closed 11,033 appeals at a value of €7.2 billion.

  • Exhibit and promote high standards in conduct in order to reinforce public confidence in the Commission which is fundamental to the maintenance of its independence and adhering to the principles, ethos and values set out in the Bangalore Principles of Judicial Conduct.
