But how long should the names of former in-house lobbyists remain on the registration?
The Integrity Commissioner, as Registrar, has directed that a former in-house lobbyist’s name should remain on the registration until the next renewal. If the former in-house lobbyist’s name has been there for six months or longer, they can be removed.
We recommend that in-house senior officers or those who manage their registrations review the “Current In-house Lobbyists” and the “Former In-house Lobbyists” lists regularly to see if there are any names that must be added, moved or removed from these lists. Updates to these lists can be done by filing a change to the registration.
If you are uncertain about whether an in-house lobbyist’s name should be added, moved or removed from these lists, please contact the Office for guidance.
