The Panel consists of a maximum of 11 full members, plus observers. Six of the full members are elected by the FRP organisations every two years in electronic elections (all registered organisations can vote and stand for elections), and up to five are appointed by the FRA Director, in order to ensure a wide diversity of types of organisations, thematic areas, gender balance, geographical representation, and international/EU, national and regional/grassroots levels. The Director can in addition appoint up to 3 observers from key civil society networks. Membership in the AP is for a period of up to three years, the term can be renewed once. The AP meets twice a year. For more details see the FRP Terms of Reference.
The elections to the new FRP Advisory Panel took place by electronic vote in 2017, and the new Panel took office in October 2017, with the nomination of Panel members by the FRA Director.
