The National Personnel Authority (人事院 Jinjiin?) in Japan advises the prime minister on salaries and other matters pertaining to national government civil servants.[1]


The three main functions[2] of the NPA are:

  • Implementing recruitment examinations, trainingprograms and establishing standards for appointment and dismissal which ensure fairness in personnel administration.
  • Making recommendations to the Diet and the Cabinet regarding remuneration and other working conditions for national public employees as compensation for the restriction of fundamental labor rights.
  • Researching domestic and international systems of personnel management and enforcing personnel management measures that can meet the needs of the times as a specialized agency for personnel administration.
