Examination Yuan
Chinese 考試院
Literal meaning Court of Examinations

The Examination Yuan (Chinese: 考試院; pinyin: Kǎoshì Yuàn; Wade–Giles: K'ao3-shih4 Yüan4) is in charge of validating the qualification of civil servants in Taiwan (Republic of China). It is one of the five government branches ("yuans") of the Government of the Republic of China. As a special branch of government under the Three Principles of the People, it may (retrospectively) be compared with the European Personnel Selection Office of the European Union or the Office of Personnel Management of the United States of America. Founded by Chinese nationalists at the beginning of the 20th century, the Examination Yuan is based on the old Imperial examination system used in Imperial China.
