Lobbyist: Code of Conduct
The South Australian Government Lobbyist Code of Conduct has been in force since 1 December 2009. Under the code, lobbyists must be registered on a public register before they can lobby government representatives. The Code is intended to ensure that those representing others in seeking to influence government adhere to high standards of probity and transparency.
Key requirements in the Code
- not engage in conduct that is corrupt, dishonest or illegal or cause or threaten detriment
- use all reasonable endeavours to satisfy themselves as to the accuracy of statements they make and the information they provide
- not make misleading, exaggerated or extravagant claims or misrepresent their access to institutions of government or political parties
- keep their activities as a lobbyist separate from personal activities or involvement on behalf of a political party.
