The Environmental Evaluation and Oversight Agency (OEFA)  was created in 2008 as a specialized technical agency, attached to the Ministry of the Environment. It is the governing body of the National Environmental Assessment and Control System (SINEFA) in Peru. The OEFA ensures that economic activities develop in balance with the right of people to enjoy a healthy environment. To this end, it is in charge of environmental assessment, supervision, control and sanction, as well as the application of incentives in the mining, energy, fisheries and industry sectors. In addition, as the governing body of SINEFA, it exercises the regulatory and supervisory functions, regarding environmental auditing entities (EFA) in Peru.
