Agency Agreements

Agency Agreements are legal documents used to transfer statutory responsibilities between bodies. We can enter into Agency Agreements to take on functions from other bodies under section 90 of the Energy Act. They require Ministerial approval and are signed by our Chair (since 1 April 2014). 

Legal arrangements made on the creation of ONR in 2014 means that the agreements should be interpreted as applying to us and the successor body in all cases where it states HSE and a former government department.
