Our Board

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is managed by a full-time Executive Board consisting of a Director General and five directors.  Our activities are organised into five Offices,  with each Office reporting to a Director.

Our Directors and staff adhere to a code of business conduct in undertaking their duties.  An advisory committee, chaired by the Director General, meets several times a year to raise issues of concern and offer advice to the board.
