Are you a TD? If so, you have obligations under the Ethics Acts, the Electoral Act, and the Code of Conduct for Members of Dáil Éireann who are not office holders.

The Electoral Act applies when you are running for election and after you are elected. When elected, you must also adhere to the Ethics Acts and the code of conduct.

Where can I get advice?

Contact us at the Standards Commission for advice on your obligations under the Electoral Act.

Contact the Committee on Members’ Interests of Dáil Éireann for advice on the Ethics Acts or the code of conduct, as we do not have authority to advise you in these areas.
