Designated Public Officials under the Regulation of Lobbying Act 2015

The Regulation of Lobbying Act commenced on 1st September 2015

Section 6(4) of the Act requires each public body to publish a list of designated Public Officials of the body.  The purpose of the list is twofold:

  1. To allow members of the public to identify those persons who are designated public officials; and
  2. As a resource for lobbyists filing a return to the Register who may need to source a designated public official’s details.
