Designated Public Officials (DPO)

The Regulation of Lobbying Act 2015 is designed to provide information to the public about who is lobbying whom about what. The  Standards in Public Office Commission  has established an online Register at www.lobbying.ie .

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 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.
