I received an email from my university that the following sentence was part of it:

We confirmed everything, no action required on your part.

Looking up in the LDOCE dictionary, I think the correct sentence must be "no action is required" according to the two meanings there. Can anyone confirm me?

PS: I would be grateful if you could point me to the grammatical errors in the question if you spot any.

You are correct, but most people would accept the grammatically incorrect version.
A comma is not the right punctuation and for the sentence to be more nearly correct it would have to be put in parenthesis-still, is, as you point out would be needed to make it totally correct.
