CCPC seeks experts for international roles

The Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (CCPC) says that it is seeking to appoint non-governmental advisers (NGAs) to the International Competition Network (ICN).

As a result, the watchdog is seeking expressions of interest from competition experts from all backgrounds – including private law practice.

The CCPC describes itself as “an active and committed member” of the ICN, which is a worldwide network of competition experts.

The commission wants to broaden its involvement in the ICN through more active engagement in a wider range of projects, and is encouraging more involvement from NGAs.


The body expects to make NGA appointments for a period of two years, renewable at the discretion of the CCPC.

The commission does not pay or contribute to expenses incurred by NGAs during their ICN activity, but it says that the role offers “high-level networking opportunities and learning benefits”.

Those interested should forward expressions of interest to international@ccpc.ie by 31 January 2024.

Once nominated by the CCPC, an NGA would be expected to contribute to the ICN’s work through participation in ICN working groups, either directly or through consultations with the CCPC, and to channel information and feedback to the CCPC.
