Regular sector reviews
The Sectors Committee conducts a rolling programme of reviews where it looks at issues affecting particular sectors and considers changes, commonly in light of changes in the market. It also considers the case for the introduction of new sectors or the abolition of existing ones which have become too small.
Where a change is made to an IMA sector or a new sector is introduced or an old one is abolished, this is generally announced in a press release.
