The National Crime Agency (NCA) is responsible for publishing National Referral Mechanism (NRM) data and does so on a quarterly basis.

The NCA does not publish data about the timescales for reaching reasonable grounds or conclusive grounds decisions. No NRM decisions are made during a potential victim’s 45 day reflection and recovery period.

Published data on the referrals to the National Referral Mechanism (NRM) is available via the following link:

Further information is also available in the 2018 UK Annual Report on Modern Slavery which was published on 18 October 2018.
