The Panel took the form of an entirely non-statutory, self-regulating association, setup by persons having a common interest, which had devised and operated a code of conduct to be observed in the take-overs and mergers of public companies. The court held that, bearing in mind that the panel did have governmental backing and was exercising its duties in the public interest, it should be subject to the control of public law. As Sir John Donaldson put it: "We have reached the position where the ambit of certiorari can be said to cover every case in which a body of persons of a public as opposed to a purely private of domestic character has to determine matters affecting subjects. Looked at in this way, the board in my judgment comes fairly and squarely within the jurisdiction of this court It is clearly performing public duties." This introduces the functions test of affects doctrine, that is if the body has the public functions or its decisions produce public law consequences then, in principle, the courts might intervene. In the case of the IRA, neither it has public functions nor do the decisions of the IRA produce public law consequences hence, the courts may not intervene in the given situation. Specifically, the IRA has no statutory or prerogative basis. One of its main functions
In several cases, it is clear that an authority which is deemed to be wholly private, even if exercising quite wide-ranging powers affecting many people, is not susceptible to the judicial review jurisdiction.

The Court of Appeal with regards to the Clean Water Act, the judgments which had been given by the district court in favor of the environmental protection agency was partly affirmed, reversed in part, partly vacated and remanded where the plaintiff had challenged the APA's approval of the exemption of Kentucky of six types of pollution which were discharged from Tier II review, even though it was found that a detailed analysis of the tests conducted for measurement of the impact of e
In the United Kingdom there is an increased recognition by the courts of the individual interests of persons likely to be aggrieved by the decisions of the administrative bodies.
