How do I know if someone is a DPO?

Section 6 of the Regulation of Lobbying Act 2015 sets out the categories of individuals that are considered Designated Public Officials for the purposes of the Act. The Act also requires that public service bodies that have Designated Public Officials publish a list of those individuals within their organisation, including the name, grade and brief details of the person’s role and responsibilities. While the database on the Register of Lobbyists allows lobbyists to search for the name of a DPO, the list published by the public service body is considered the definitive resource.
