The agency is tasked with the enforcement of the penal and regulatory provisions of RA 9165. All other agencies in the Philippines, such as the Philippine National Police, the National Bureau of Investigation, and the Bureau of Customs Enforcement Service, must inform and coordinate any anti-drug operations with the PDEA. The PDEA is led by a Director General and assisted by other officials. The more prominent units within the PDEA are the intelligence and investigation, plans and operations, and the legal and prosecution services. The basic qualifications for becoming a Drug Enforcement Officer are as follows: 21 to 35 years of age, a college degree holder, has passed the Civil Service Professional Exam, and physically fit.
