The IMC was created by the British and Irish governments to fulfil 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 in the Northern Ireland Assembly that a Minister or another party was not committed to democratic means or was not following the correct standards of behaviour. The Commission ceased operations in 2011.
