Giovanni Buttarelli (EDPS) and Wojciech Wiewiórowski (Assistant Supervisor) are members of the institution, appointed by a joint decision of the European Parliament and the Council. Assigned for a five year term, they took office on 4 December 2014.

 
The selection procedure which led to their appointment was transparent and involved the three major EU institutions. Following a public call for candidates, an inter-institutional selection board made a short list of the most competent applicants, who were then interviewed. Subsequently, the selection board forwarded a list with recommended candidates to the European Commission for its adoption and submission to the European Parliament and the Council. Hearings then took place in the European Parliament in order to evaluate the experiences, skills and independence of the candidates. This was followed by discussions in Parliament and Council, and eventually by a joint decision.
