The Environmental Agency is a body of the Ministry of the Environment and Spatial Planning. It performs expert, analytical, regulatory and administrative tasks related to the environment at the national level. Thus the Agency's mission is to monitor, analyse and forecast natural phenomena and processes in the environment, and to reduce natural threats to people and property. These tasks are performed by the national services for meteorology, hydrology and seismology. The Agency's mission is also to monitor environmental contamination and to provide reliable public environmental data; to this end, the Agency has the appropriate measuring network and laboratories in place. Its mission of exceptional importance is, moreover, to meet the requirements regarding environmental protection deriving from the regulations in force, to preserve natural resources and the biotic diversity and to ensure sustainable development of the country.
The Environmental Agency contributes most towards solving environmental problems by implementing environmental legislation. At the Agency, we handle administrative procedures involving those entities required to pay environmental charges: water fees and taxes on water pollution, carbon dioxide emission and waste disposal. The environmental charges are an extremely effective and well thought-out instrument of environmental protection. A considerable part of these funds is used by the same entities themselves to reduce the environmental burden.
