Judgment No. 1458
THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.
The Advisory Committee on Post Adjustment Questions (ACPAQ) is a subsidiary body of the International Civil Service Commission set up with the approval of the General Assembly to make recommendations on the general administration of the system of post adjustments. "It has no authority to make decisions. Its recommendations become part of the post adjustment system only when approved by the Commission. The conclusion is that the recommendation of ACPAQ [...] has no binding force and is therefore irrelevant".
