Press release

The new Transparency Register Act obligates lobbyists to provide information on lobbying targeted at Parliament and ministries to the Transparency Register from the beginning of next year. The National Audit Office of Finland is the controller of the Transparency Register and it will monitor compliance with the obligation to provide information to the Register.

The Ministry of Justice is responsible for monitoring and developing the legislation governing the Transparency Register. Before the Act enters into force, the Ministry of Justice also supports the implementation of the Act. 

Check out the Transparency Register Guide

A guide containing a general description of the Transparency Register, its key concepts and the related procedures and actors has been published. The guide provides answers to questions such as who are subject to the obligation to provide information to the Transparency Register, what kind of information must be provided to the Register and when, and how the Transparency Register is monitored.

The Transparency Register guide is intended for lobbyists, targets of lobbying activities and others interested in the topic.  The guide is available in Finnish, Swedish and English.
