In addition to the investigation of complaints under the Ethics Acts, the Standards Commission has a separate supervisory function to ensure compliance with the provisions of the Electoral Act 1997 (as amended). Where a person considers that the Electoral Acts may have been contravened, whether by a "specified person" or otherwise, he /she may contact the Standards Commission, which, if it considers it appropriate to do so, will investigate the matter.

Section 4(4) of the Electoral Acts provides that the Standards Commission may make such enquiries as it considers appropriate and may require any person to furnish any information or document which may be required for the purposes of its duties under the Electoral Acts.

Should you wish to make a complaint under the Electoral Acts please forward details by post to: 

Standards in Public Office Commission
