In order to further inform the Department’s work, submissions were invited from interested parties on key issues relating to options for the design, structure and implementation of an effective regulatory system for lobbying in Ireland. This consultation process was based on the agreed OECD Principles for Transparency and Integrity in Lobbying which was the subject of a Recommendation by the OECD Council in February 2010.

The main issues in respect of which information and views were requested are identified in a number of questions related to each of the OECD Principles available here.
