ABO-Examination Board

The executive board will select the members of the board of examiners from an examiners’ pool by simple majority. The examiners’ pool will be determined by the extended executive board.

The board of examiners consists of three members who are either holders of the certificate of the European Board of Orthodontists, of the Austrian Board of Orthodontists, or an equivalent board, or habilitated university teachers of orthodontics. One member should be a habilitated university teacher and one member should be a practising orthodontist.

The board of examiners elects its chairperson and establishes the procedure for the assessment of cases.
