Annual Reports

The EPA has an obligation under the Environmental Protection Act 1986 to provide an Annual Report to the Minister for Environment.
 
The Office of the EPA was established as a separate Department of State on 27 November 2009 and is also obliged to publish an Annual Report under the Financial Management Act 2006.
 
The annual reports for 2009-10, 2010-11 and 2011-12 were intended to meet both statutory obligations, with distinctions drawn between the EPA and OEPA where appropriate.
 
From 2012-13, the EPA and OEPA provided separate annual reports to clarify the distinction of roles and functions, and to reinforce the independence of the Authority.
