Recommendations

What are recommendations?

The Commission has made a number of recommendations as part of our reviews. We track the progress made against these recommendations quarterly and provide a full update in our Annual Reviews. This recommendation tracker shows the status of every recommendation we have made. It is also searchable by report or by organisation so you can find the recommendations you are interested in.
