All Declarants are required to deliver their completed Declaration forms, along with the relevant supporting documents, in person, at an office of the Commission.

The Commission may publish, in the Gazette, the names of those persons who have failed to file by June 30, 2019. In any event that the Commission is unable to contact any Specified Persons in Public Life by direct email, or by telephone, the Commission will not be held responsible for a failure on the part of that person to file.
