The Business Appointment Rules, set out in the Civil Service Management Code, place requirements on all serving civil servants, and on former civil servants for two years after their last day of service, who intend to take an outside appointment or employment after leaving the civil service. Before accepting any new appointment or employment, they must consider whether the rules require them to apply for approval. The circumstances are set out in the Civil Service Management Code and the level of approval required differs according to seniority.

All applications received are recorded, including the name of the company or organisation intending to make the appointment.
