National Referral Mechanism for Modern Slavery
Last updated: 14/04/2020
As part of the reforms to the National Referral Mechanism (NRM), the Home Office launched the new Single Competent Authority (SCA) on Monday 29 April. From this date, the SCA will be responsible for all NRM decisions regardless of an individual’s nationality or immigration status. This expert case working unit will sit in the Home Office, and will replace the competent authorities currently located in UK Visas & Immigration and the National Crime Agency. This change will create a single process for all NRM referrals and is part of the Home Office work to improve the service they provide to victims, reduce decision-making timescales and increase the certainty of NRM decisions.

The Home Office will also be in touch soon regarding the move to the new digital NRM referral form, which is currently being tested ahead of rollout later in the spring.
