Administrative Circular No. 17 (Rev. 2) – Internal mobility


Administrative Circular No. 17 (Rev. 2) on “Internal mobility”, approved by the Director-General after discussion at the Standing Concertation Committee on 11 March 2021, is available via the following link: http://cds.cern.ch/record/2765313

The circular has been modified in order to:

  • provide a more precise definition of internal mobility, excluding restructuring situations;
  • provide clarification of the internal mobility process, including specific provisions on the selection and communication aspects, as well as details on the respective roles and responsibilities of the sending and hosting Departments; and
  • replace the notion of «internal detachment» by «temporary mobility». This modification serves to clarify the respective Management responsibilities and to provide a framework around the duration of the temporary mobility.

This circular cancels and replaces Administrative Circular No. 17 (Rev. 1) also entitled “Internal mobility” of July 1996. It will enter into force on 1 May 2021.
