[note: The ILS Priorities in the Use of Resources are quite broad. The decision to accept a case will depend on many circumstances, not just upon whether the case fits within the ILS Priorities. A case may fit within the ILS Priorities, but not be accepted for other reasons such as ILS staff availability, merits of the case, etc.]
