Long description: The Agency for Environmental Protection and Technical Services (APAT) carries out scientific and technical activities in the national interest to protect the environment, water resources and the soil; it was created by merging the National Environmental Protection Agency (ANPA) with the Department for National Technical Services of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers. APAT is technically, scientifically and financially autonomous and is subject to the guidelines and oversight of the Ministry of the Environment and Territorial Protection and to monitoring by the national Audit Office. APAT operates on the basis of a three-year programme, annually updated, that sets objectives, priorities and resources, in implementation of the directives of the Ministry of the Environment and Territorial Protection. Within those areas over which it has jurisdiction, APAT provides collaboration, consulting, service and support to other government agencies, as specified by special agreements.
