The Supreme Board of Judges and Prosecutors (Turkish: Hâkimler ve Savcılar Yüksek Kurulu, HSYK; also translated as High Council of Judges and Prosecutors) is the disciplinary body of the legal system of the Republic of Turkey. It was established under the 1982 Constitution of Turkey and significantly amended by the Turkish constitutional referendum, 2010 (including an expansion from 7 members to 22).

Aidul Fitriciada Azhari, the chairman of the Judicial Commission of Indonesia, praised the Supreme Board's efforts during the 2016 Turkish purges as a positive example of external oversight of a judicial system.
