EU Institutions, bodies and agencies

ECHA is an EU agency, governed by EU public law. It has its own legal personality, but works together with the EU institutions, such as the European Commission, the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union, and with other EU agencies. 

EU Institutions, bodies and agencies - Council

Together with the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union decides on the content and final adoption of legislation that governs and drives ECHA's work. 

The Council is also part of the EU's budgetary authority. It decides upon public funds and makes a recommendation to the European Parliament on granting of a 'discharge' or final approval of the Agency's budget for a given year. 

The Council appoints members who are nominated by each Member State to ECHA’s Management Board.
