Independent Monitoring Authority: Protecting EU citizens’ rights:
The EU-UK Withdrawal Agreement sets out the rights of EU citizens who were living in the UK before 1 January 2021.
The Independent Monitoring Authority (IMA) helps to protect the rights of citizens from the EU, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway who came to live in the UK before 1 January 2021. It does not cover Swiss citizens.
The IMA does 2 main things:
- monitoring how UK public bodies are protecting EU citizens’ rights
- promoting the effective implementation of citizens’ rights, such as helping public bodies to understand where things are going wrong so that they can put them right
You can report a complaint on the IMA website.
