The Directorate was founded in 1900, and its main tasks involve regulation, guidance, supervision, resource management and quality control. The Directorate has in recent years undergone significant reorganisation and decentralisation, and the seven regional offices have been assigned new tasks. Their responsibilities include dealing with individual cases, providing guidance and conducting monitoring and auditing activities, including resource monitoring. The regional offices are also in charge of a number of local offices.
