"The Registrar requires more information in the following sections..."
All registrations submitted to the Office receive a careful preliminary review by Inquiries Officers, who make sure that a lobbyist has provided all of the information required by the Act before it can be published by the Lobbyists Registrar.
Approximately 34 per cent of registrations are refused because the information submitted is incomplete or out of date. The most common reason for refusal is the need for a more complete description of the lobbying activity.
If you receive a request for more information, an Inquiries Officer will give you a deadline to provide it and may reset the registration to draft so that you or your delegated primary contact can update it. This could mean you aren’t registered, so it’s important to update the information promptly and resubmit the registration.
The best practice is to carefully review your registration before you submit it. Have you completed all of the applicable fields? Is the description of the lobbying activity complete and an accurate reflection of the work you will be doing? Have you identified all of the lobbying targets?

A careful review at the front-end of the process will speed up the review of your registration in the Office, and will help reduce the number of email requests you receive.
