This section contains details about Hearings to be held by the Standards Commission and the procedures to be followed. It also contains information about decisions the Standards Commission has made and any interim suspensions in place. The section also contains information for individuals who are the subject of a Hearing (Respondents).

No Action Decisions and Further Investigations

Information can be found in the table below about cases referred to the Standards Commission where the decision has been made to either:

  • direct the Ethical Standards Commissioner (ESC) to carry out further investigations; or
  • take no action.

In cases where the decision has been taken to direct the ESC to carry out further investigations, no 'Written Decision' document will be available for download.

Information on cases where the Standards Commission has held a Hearing, or is to hold a Hearing, can be found under 'Cases - Forthcoming Hearings and Hearing Decisions'. 

Information about No Action Decisions will be kept for five years from the date of the Standards Commission’s full written decision. After this, details about the case will be removed from the website and will no longer be available, in line with the Standards Commission’s Document Retention Schedule.
