Lobbying transparency in Ireland

· The Regulation of Lobbying Act of 2015 requires that any person who falls within the scope of the Act, who is communicating with a designated public official about a relevant matter, must register and submit returns to a lobbying register three times a year.

· Registration is mandatory and any lobbyist contacting an Irish official must report the interaction on the register. Thus, it is up to the lobbyist and not the official to make the disclosure.

· Public officials do not have any specific obligations under the Act. However, general guidelines exist for interaction with lobbyists.

· The register is operated by staff from the Ombudsman's office.
