From Department of Environment, Energy and Natural Resources, it was renamed as Department of Environment and Natural Resources by virtue of Executive Order No. 192 under the Presidency of Corazon C. Aquino dated June 10, 1987. This Reorganization Act established the Department’s mandate and define the structures and functions/concerns of its various officers, staff bureaus, attached agencies and field officers consisting Regional, Provincial and Community Offices.

DENR Romblon by virtue also of the same Executive Order, was established by the merger of Bureau of Forestry and the Bureau of Land District Office. It was in 1979 when the Bureau of Forestry also known to be Bureau of Forest Development (BFD) constructed its building, now the PENR Office, at its present site in Brgy. Tabing Dagat, Odiongan, Romblon. The Bureau of Lands Building was constructed in the mid 70’s at a portion of the Old Barracks during the Japanese Regime of the Philippine Constabulary Compound at Brgy. Tabing Dagat and became the CENR Office during the merging.
