Decision on appointing a court appraiser
A decision to appoint a court appraiser is issued by the minister responsible for justice. A person who wishes to be appointed should submit an application for the appointment of an appraiser on the prescribed form to the ministry.
An appraiser may commence work when they have taken an oath before the minister. The appointment of a court appraiser is published in the Official Gazette of the Republic of Slovenia. The ministry provides a stamp and a card for an appraiser at the appraiser's costs.
A court appraiser is entered in the directory of court appraisers managed by the ministry responsible for justice.
