French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety

Financial Affairs Department

The Financial Affairs Department is organised into two major units: 

  • a budgetary planning and management control unit, which manages and monitors the establishment's financial affairs;
  • an accounting agency, which carries out the Agency's financial and accounting transactions, in accordance with the provisions of Decree No. 2012-1246 of 7 November 2012 on budgetary management and public accounting.


The accounting agency is placed under the responsibility of an accounting officer appointed by decree by the French Minister for the Budget.

The authorising officer prescribes and implements the Agency's revenue and expenditure. The role of authorising officer is performed by the Director General and any persons to whom he has delegated his signature.

The proposed organisation is based on the provisions of Article 188 of the Decree of 7 November 2012 on budgetary management and public accounting, which stipulate that the accounting officer may, at the request of the organisation's executive authority, perform the functions of comptroller. As such, they may perform the tasks of the authorising officer.

The Financial Affairs Department is headed by a director, the accounting officer, assisted by a deputy director and two heads of unit.

Under an agreement that sets out the tasks assigned to the accounting officer by the authorising officer, the Budgetary Planning and Management Control Unit, acting on behalf of the authorising officer, takes charge of all of the tasks necessary to the development, implementation and monitoring of the Agency's budget.


Director (interim): Arnaud Boulet
