GIVEN under my Official Seal,

BRENDAN HOWLIN T.D.,

Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform.

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 holding or occupying specified directorships and positions in the Public Service (other than in the Civil Service). The Regulations prescribe certain directorships and positions of employment in the Public Service as either “designated directorships” or “designated positions of employment” as referred to in Sections 17 and 18 of the Act, respectively.

Persons holding directorships or occupying positions prescribed in these regulations are required to furnish a statement of disclosable 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) as determined by the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform. Persons holding directorships prescribed as “designated directorships” are also required to furnish a statement of disclosable interests to the Standards in Public Office Commission.

Details of the officer or relevant authority in each of the public bodies, as determined by the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform, will be available in an Appendix to the Standards in Public Office Commissions “Guidelines on Compliance with the Provisions of the Ethics in Public Office Acts 1995 and 2001 - Public Servants”.

These regulations amend the Ethics in Public Office (Prescribed Public Bodies, Designated Directorships of Public Bodies and Designated Positions in Public Bodies) Regulations 2004 ( S.I. No. 699 of 2004 ) which was most recently amended by Ethics in Public Office (Prescribed Public Bodies, Designated Directorships of Public Bodies and Designated Positions in Public Bodies) (Amendment) Regulations 2013 (S.I. No. 271/2013).
