Regional Inspectorate for the Environment

Welcome to the Regional Inspectorate for the Environment webpage

The Regional Inspectorate for the Environment (RIE/IRA) is a Service of the Regional Secretariat of Environment and Sea and an organ of criminal police, to which it entrusts to guarantee the fulfillment of the legal standards with Environmental incidence in the Autonomous Region of the Azores.

The breach of the environmental standards is a fact in our Region. There is, so, a real threat on the environment that surrounds us, worrying, if we realize how it is fundamental to affirm ourselves more and more like an Ecological Region.

Having this to be a concern of us all, being the environment an area in which the problem will always be of the community and never individual, the responsibility will also have to be global. From the common citizen, who will have to carry out the standards and look so that the others also fulfill them, to the public institutions, these with added responsibility. It is in this point that the RIE will also know to assume its own.

The RIE will act in a responsible and efficient way, with an inspection of proximity and pedagogic, but also applying the punitive sanctions to the offenders guaranteeing that the sanctions produce their effects of general and special prevention.

In this way, the RIE intends to secure the fulfillment of its last objective that will always be the constant improvement of the environmental quality in the region, contributing to its sustainable development.
