Summary

In 1987 the Environmental Protection Authority [2] was established as a new government department. Prior to its establishment responsibility for conservation, environment and pollution had been split between a statutory authority, the Environmental Protection Authority [1] (1971 - 1987), and a government department, the Department of Conservation and Environment (1975 - 1987). The existence of the Environmental Protection Authority [2] as a singular departmental entity lasted until 1994 when it was reverted to a statutory authority, the Environmental Protection Authority [3] (1994 - ) and a separate government Department of Environmental Protection (1994 -2008) was established.
