In September 2012 the Integrity Commission Ordinance (2008) was amended to provide a system for members of the House of Assembly to register their interests in addition to their declaration under Section 39 of the Main Ordinance.
The purpose of the Register is to promote and strengthen public trust and confidence in the parliamentary process by improving transparency, openness, and accountability. It furnishes protection against arguments that a possible conflict might arise between a member’s public duty and private interests. If certain things are made known and registered, the question of any conflict of interest can be minimized.
The Register is made available for public inspection at multiple locations throughout the islands. It can be inspected at the following locations:-
- House of Assembly, Grand Turk.
- Office of the Premier, Grand Turk, and Providenciales
- Office of the Integrity Commission, Grand Turk, and Providenciales.
- The District Commissioners’ Offices in Salt Cay, Middle Caicos, North Caicos, and South Caicos
A Brochure has been prepared for persons who wish to learn more about Registrable Interests. You can download a pdf version of this brochure from the Brochures/Flyers page in the Public Education section of our website.
