Activity from lobbies and their compatibility with the democratic system has been the subject of consideration for decades, particularly in common law countries that have been the first to regulate it.

This is a positive step to raise awareness and monitor the private influence in the public decision making, albeit on the basis of the application of the regulation, in the future must be improved in order to enhance effectiveness
