Recommendations regarding the implementation of the Austrian Lobbying Act in companies and associations

November 19th, 2012, Andreas Kovar

The Lobbying Act will enter into force on January 1st, 2013. The law obliges domestic and foreign organizations (provided certain conditions are met) to register in a directory led by the Austrian Ministry of Justice. The Act introduces binding rules of conduct for lobbying and representation of interests. This white paper is intended to support the Lobbying Act’s implementation in companies and associations.
