Is EPSO planning to cancel other competitions every time people complain about it?
The decision to cancel a competition is a very exceptional measure. It is never taken lightly. EPSO’s director made this decision, in her capacity as Appointing Authority, with the agreement of EPSO’s governing body, the interinstitutional management board, after a very careful analysis of the situation.
Despite the fact that the majority of the candidates who booked a testing slot did not encounter difficulties to run the remotely proctored tests, EPSO and the recruiting services of the EU institutions concerned, felt that there was sufficient reason – due to an accumulation of issues and mounting pressure from different stakeholders – to cancel this specific competition and to start anew
