STATUTORY INSTRUMENTS

S.I. No. 699 of 2004

Ethics in Public Office (Prescribed Public Bodies, Designated Directorships of Public Bodies and Designated Positions in Public Bodies) Regulations 2004

Made by the Minister for Finance

WHEREAS I, BRIAN COWEN, Minister for Finance, am of the opinion that the bodies specified in the following regulations ought, in the public interest and having regard to the provisions and spirit of the Ethics in Public Office Act 1995 (No. 22 of 1995) (hereafter referred to as “the Act”), to be prescribed:

AND WHEREAS I consider that it is necessary in the public interest to prescribe the directorships of the public bodies specified in the following regulations for the purposes of the definition of “designated directorship” in section 2 of the Act and the positions of employment in the public bodies specified in the following regulations for the purposes of the definition of “designated position” in the said section 2 in order to ensure, in a case in which, in my opinion, a conflict could arise between an interest referred to in section 17 of the Act or, as the case may be, section 18 thereof and the public interest in the performance of a function of such a directorship or position, that the function will not be performed without the disclosure of the first-mentioned interest:

NOW, THEREFORE, I, BRIAN COWEN, Minister for Finance, in exercise of the powers conferred on me by section 3 of, and paragraph 1(13) of the First Schedule to, the Act and after consultation with such other Ministers of the Government as I consider appropriate, hereby make the following regulations:

 (2)        In these Regulations a reference to a Schedule is a reference to the Schedule to these Regulations, unless it is indicated that a reference to some other provision is intended.

4.        For the purpose of the definition of “designated directorship” in section 2 of the Act, the directorships specified in column (3) of the Schedule of each public body specified in column (2) of the Schedule opposite that reference number are prescribed.

5.        Every position in any public body specified in subparagraphs (9) to (13) of paragraph 1 of the First Schedule to the Act, in respect of which the maximum salary is not less than the maximum salary of a principal (general service grade, Class B PRSI) in the Civil Service, is prescribed, for the purposes of the definition of “designated position” in section 2 of the Act.

6.        For the purposes of the definition of “designated position” in section 2 of the Act, the positions of employment specified in column (4) of the Schedule of each public body specified in column (2) of the Schedule opposite that reference number are prescribed.

7.        The following offices are prescribed for the purposes of section 18(3)(b)(v) of the Act:

(a) the office of chairman and ordinary member of the Labour Court,

Minister for Finance

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 individuals occupying specified positions in the Civil Service and in the wider Public Service. The Regulations designate certain positions in the Public Service as either “designated directorships” or “designated positions” as defined in Sections 17 and 18 of the Act, respectively. Persons occupying positions designated in these regulations are required to furnish a statement of registrable interests (as defined in the Second Schedule to the Act) to such officer or relevant authority (as defined in Sections 17 and 18 of the Act) within their organisation. Persons occupying positions designated as “designated directorships”, will also be required to furnish a statement of registrable interests to the Standards in Public Office Commission.

The relevant authority in each of the public bodies will be specified by the Minister for Finance and details will be available in an Appendix to the Standards in Public Office Commission's “Guidelines on compliance with the provisions of The Ethics in Public Office Acts 1995 and 2001 - Public Servants (Third Edition).”
