Welcome to the Independent Monitoring Authority for the Citizens’ Rights Agreements

We protect the rights of EU and EEA EFTA citizens, and their family members, in the UK and Gibraltar. We do this by monitoring UK public bodies to make sure they implement the rights of these citizens and by identifying any underlying issues. We are independent of government and will be both professional and impartial in our work.
