The Office for Environmental Protection is legally formed17.11.2021
17th November 2021 marks a significant day for the Office of Environmental Protection (OEP) which has now been legally formed. This follows the passing of the Environment Act 2021 by Parliament last week. This is an important step towards the OEP becoming a fully operational and independent organisation, in the New Year, standing ready to hold government and public authorities to account.
