Regional State Administrative Agency

The Regional State Administrative Agencies (Finnish: aluehallintovirasto, Swedish: regionförvaltningsverk) are a set of top-level regional organs of the state of Finland, mainly in charge of basic public services and legal permits. Six agencies took over some of the tasks of the earlier provinces of Finland, which were abolished at the end of 2009. A seventh agency in the autonomous Åland Islands is named the State Department of Åland.

The agencies themselves do not constitute a subdivision of Finland (ISO 3166-2:FI); instead, the first-level subdivisions are the regions of Finland. The other important set of top-level regional state agencies are the Centres for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment (ely-keskus).
