The article is devoted to the analysis of administrative and legal principles of management in the field of ensuring environmental safety of the state. 

The object of administrative and legal regulation has been established – social relations in the form of behavior and actions of people that take place in connection with the provision of public authorities, environmental rights and freedoms of man and citizen, the interests of society and the state in this area.

It is established that the functions of managing the environmental safety of the state constitute a certain system of activities in this area, which are interconnected by subject and object of influence, and therefore form a holistic means of streamlining the relevant relations.

In accordance with Art. 16 of the Constitution of Ukraine ensuring environmental safety and maintaining ecological balance on the territory of Ukraine is the responsibility of the state. Its implementation is ensured by the legal regulation of this sphere of human life, society, and the state by the norms of various branches of law. Therefore, in the context of adaptation of national legislation to the legislation of the European Union, the issues of creating an effective system of environmental management entities, reforming public authorities and introducing European standards into their activities have taken a new breath. After all, it is from the effective environmental activities of state bodies and public institutions that the proper state of protection of environmental rights and maintaining ecological balance on the territory of Ukraine depends.
