OEP Governance Framework
The OEP Board has agreed its Governance Framework, which sets out how it will work to high standards of corporate governance and how it will make its decisions. It adopted this Governance Framework in November 2021.
The Interim Office for Environmental Protection existed between 1 July 2021 and 16 November 2021, when the OEP was legally created. Terms of Reference for the Interim OEP were agreed between its Chair, Dame Glenys Stacey, and senior officials at the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. The terms set out the how the Interim OEP was established as a shadow body, and the role it will played ahead of the OEP being legally established.
