Registering in the Registry

The Act obliges lobbyists to disclose in a public registry the subject-matter of their lobbying activities, in compliance with maximum registration periods.

In fact, this return allows citizens to know who is seeking to influence the decisions of those who work in parliamentary, government and municipal institutions.

What are the advantages of registering in a public registry?

  • Act in accordance with the law;
  • allow citizens to know what is happening in their environment (municipal, government and parliamentary);
  • contribute to the improvement of democratic life;
  • benefit from a showcase presenting the lobbyist’s fields of expertise;
  • engaging in lobbying activities within the meaning of the Act without disclosing the subject-matter in the Lobbyists Registry is an offence liable to a fine;
  • moreover, consulting the Lobbyists Registry makes it possible to know the other “lobbyists” active on different projects and obtain information on major issues of public interest.

Under the Act, engaging in lobbying activities without disclosing the subject matter in the Lobbyists Registry is an offence liable to penal sanctions.
