The Inspection Panel began operations in 1994 and was the first accountability mechanism of its kind. The Panel may only investigate projects financed by the public sector branches of the World Bank Group: the IBRD and IDA.
The Panel consists of three Panel members and a small staff. To ensure independence, Panel members cannot have worked for the Bank in any capacity for the two years before they work for the Panel, and can never work for the Bank again after their five-year term as a Panel member is complete.
