Lobbying (Scotland) Act 2016

Application for registration

57.Section 9 contains provision relating to applications for registration, in particular to allow a person to seek to be entered on the register in advance of the person engaging in regulated lobbying if they so wish. A person who is not already an active registrant is therefore able to apply to the Clerk to be entered in the register (and therefore become an active registrant), providing information about their identity as set out at section 5. Again, the information must be in such a form as the Clerk may determine.
