As part of good corporate governance, the Boards of DEFRA's executive non-departmental public bodies review the major risks to their organisation's objectives regularly. Information on the type of risks each organisation faces is contained in their annual reports or business plans. From 1 April 2012, annual reports will contain a governance statement which will describe the organisation's risk environment and the key risks it is facing.

In addition to corporate-level risks, NDPBs will hold risk information for their major projects.
