Writing Peace: Treaties and Agreements

2003-09-18

This Act legislated for the creation of the Independent Monitoring Commission (IMC). It outlined three responsibilities: to monitor and report on the continuing activities of paramilitary groups; to monitor and report at six-monthly intervals on the security normalisation measures taken by the British Government in Northern Ireland; and, to consider and report on claims from any party represented in the Northern Ireland Assembly that a Minister or another party was not committed to democratic means or failed to observe the correct standards of behaviour.

The Act also specified that the Commission was to consist of four members: two to be appointed by the Government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, of which one was from Northern Ireland; one member appointed by the Government of Ireland; and one member nominated by the Government of the United States and appointed jointly by the two Governments.

The Commissioners who would later be nominated were: Lord Alderdice (NI); John Grieve (Ireland); Joe Brosnan (Britain); and Dick Kerr (USA).

Treaty Series 2004 No. 1 established the IMC on 7 January 2004. The Commission concluded operations on 31 March 2011.
