Decree on Organisation and Functioning of Public Administration, which entered into force on January 20, 2012, created the legal basis for the establishment of united inspection body, that is, the Administration for Inspection Affairs. On March 8, 2012 the Government of Montenegro appointed the Director of the Administration. The Rulebook on Internal Organisation and Systematisation of the Administration for Inspection Affairs was adopted on June 26, 2012. The following inspection sectors were taken over in the first phase of consolidation of inspection affairs:

- The Sector for Market Inspection, the Sector for Electroenergetic Inspection, the Sector for Termoenergetic Inspection, the Sector for Mining Inspection, the Sector for Geologic Inspection and the Sector for Hydrocarbon Inspection from the Ministry of Economy;
- The Sector for the Inspection of Electronic Communication, Postal Activity and Information Society Services from the Ministry of Information Society and Telecommunications;

- The Sector for Environmental Inspection from the Environmental Protection Agency;

The inspectors for spatial protection are authorised to perform inspection which is under the competence of the Sector for Home Inspection, whereas the Sector for Hydrocarbon Inspection and the Sector for Geodetic Inspection are not staffed.

This Decree envisages overtaking inspections from the field of education, sports and protection of cultural heritage, archival activities, payment of public revenues, control of submission of financial statements, prevention of money laundering and terrorist financing within the second phase of consolidation of inspection affairs.

The Administration for Inspection Affairs was established in order to achieve greater efficiency of inspection, strengthen economic aspects of inspection, prevent positive and negative conflicts of competence, achieve more adequate mutual cooperation of inspection bodies, increase professionalism of inspectors, suppress possible corruption, as well as to improve cooperation of inspections with other bodies in performing inspection. Internal organisation provides performance of joint inspections, by which the efficiency of inspection is increased and costs related to the performance of inspection are decreased.

The establishment of the Administration for Inspection Affairs provided the conditions for professional, efficient and effective system of inspection. Such system contributes to raising awareness of the need for compliance with regulations, raising the level of social discipline and reduction of corruption and improvement of business and living environment in Montenegro by its predominantly preventive and corrective function.
