Environmental Enforcement

There are a number of agencies responsible for environmental enforcement, such as the Environment and Resources Authority, the Planning Authority, the Police, the Armed Forces, Transport Malta, the Malta Resources Authority and the Environmental Health Directorate. Their role is to ensure environmental quality and prevent the degradation of the terrestrial and marine environment. As part of the drive towards more comprehensive e-government, and enhancing public understandings of the remits of the various government departments and agencies in this field, the following list provides online information on the various environmental enforcement responsibilities with Government.
