ACCA have undertaken to review whether any Adverse Effect has arisen as a result of past non-compliance and take action to mitigate any Adverse Effect identified.

In line with general condition B8, ACCA must now take all the steps identified in the undertaking. We may take further action if it doesn’t follow through on its commitments.
