The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) is a Non-Departmental Public Body (NDPB) with a Board appointed by, and accountable to, Scottish Ministers. SEPA was established by the Environment Act 1995 and became operational on April 1, 1996. The Environment Act 1995 also sets out SEPA's powers and responsibilities.

This Ministerial public re-appointment was made in accordance with the code of practice published by the Public Appointments Commissioner for Scotland.

All appointments are made on merit and political activity plays no part in the selection process. However, in accordance with the original Nolan recommendations, there is a requirement for appointees' political activity within the last five years (if there is any to be declared) to be made public.

Cllr Hay is currently a Local Councillor with Argyll and Bute, a member of Liberal Democrat Party and Vice Chair of the Argyll and Bute Constituency Party.
