A No Further Action is when the IMA has been in dialogue with public bodies about certain issues and no further action has been taken, however; this does not prevent the IMA from intervening or taking action at a later date.
An Early Case Resolution may be agreed between the IMA and a public authority where this would enable existing or potential, systemic or general failures to be identified and addressed without the need for the IMA to undertake a full inquiry.
Sometimes we may feel that a failure by a UK public body to implement the citizens rights agreement warrants a full Inquiry. This could result in legal proceedings in which a judge will review the law.
We also monitor legislation to help identify any issues that may arise, and use this to inform our work.
