What is the Lobbying Register?

The Queensland Integrity Commissioner (QIC) is responsible for maintaining the state’s Lobbying register under the Integrity Act 2009 (Qld) and the Lobbyists Code of Conduct.

The Lobbying register includes:

  • lobbyists’ names and business registration details
  • the name and role of each person employed, contracted or engaged by a lobbyist to carry out a lobbying activity (called a ‘listed person’)
  • the date the person became a former senior government representative or a former opposition representative (if applicable)
  • the name of each third-party client of the lobbyist, which remains searchable via the ‘Search client’ button for 12 months after lobbying activity ceases; will be kept in the database and be searchable in the Contact log for 10 years after lobbying activity ceases
  • the purpose of the lobbying contact.

Register of contact with lobbyist

All public authorities (state, local government and opposition representatives) listed under the Integrity Act must keep records of their contact with lobbyists for 10 years under the Queensland State Archives General Retention and Disposal Schedule for Administrative Records.

Queensland State Archives also provides advice on managing contact records with lobbyists in its Public Records Brief.
