Fixing the Interests
Register for good

What's this all about?

Australia's Parliamentary Interests Register - the place our politicians declare conflicts of interest - needs to be fixed. The BURN THE REGISTER community of journalists and citizens will crowd-source the digitisation of the old hand-written paper and PDF entries to make them searchable.

This is mad tell me more


How are we tracking?

Each page of the register will be transcribed twice to make them searchable. For high value datasets like shareholdings, the data will be sent back to the MP for sign-off, to ensure the results are triple-checked.

2700+ pages on register

5676 digitisation tasks created

1998 tasks completed

So far we have done around 33 per cent of the transcription required.
