Since the National Referral Mechanism commenced on 1 April 2009 there are 19 recorded cases where the decision has been formally reversed following reconsideration by the Competent Authority. The Competent Authority's decision is often the result of multi-agency consultation and will be reconsidered if significant additional information becomes available after the initial decision is made.
