Office of Environmental Enforcement

‚ÄčThe Office of Environmental Enforcement (OEE) is an office within the EPA dedicated to the implementation and enforcement of environmental legislation in Ireland. The OEE puts the environment first and encourages individuals and businesses to integrate good environmental practices into normal working methods. The OEE seeks to prevent environmental pollution before it has a chance to occur.


The OEE exercises a supervisory role in respect of the environmental protection activities of local authorities and in this regard it may take action against local authorities that are not discharging their environmental protection functions properly.
