EXPLANATORY NOTE
(This note is not part of the Instrument and does not purport to be a legal interpretation).
These regulations are made under the Ethics in Public Office Act 1995 (No. 22 of 1995) to apply the provisions of the Act to persons occupying specified positions of employment in the Civil Service. The Regulations prescribe certain positions in the Civil Service as “designated positions of employment” as defined in Section 18 of the Act. Persons occupying positions prescribed by these regulations are required, where a registrable interest or interests (as defined in the Second Schedule to the Act) exists, to furnish a statement of registrable interests to the relevant authority for the position (as defined in Section 18 of the Act). If no such registrable interest exists a “nil” statement is requested.
The Secretary General of a Department (Head of Office for a Civil Service Office) is the relevant authority to whom statements of interests must be furnished by every established civil servant occupying a designated position of employment in a grade below Secretary General level in that Department or Office. Secretaries General must furnish their statements of interests to the Secretary General (Public Service Management and Development) in the Department of Finance.
