Office of the Registrar of
Consultant Lobbyists

The Office of the Registrar of Consultant Lobbyists was set up following the Transparency of Lobbying, Non-Party Campaigning and Trade Union Administration Act 2014, in order to create and administer the statutory Register of Consultant Lobbyists.

The Government’s intention behind the introduction of the Register was to enhance the transparency of those seeking to lobby Ministers and Permanent Secretaries on behalf of a third party.

At its heart, the role of the Office of the Registrar of Consultant Lobbyists is about ensuring there is transparency in the work of consultant lobbyists and their engagement with Ministers and Permanent Secretaries on behalf of clients. For this to happen it is important that the public can access information in a clear and easily understandable way.
