Devolved public bodies which come within the ambit of the 2000 act will not need to have their register of interest in place until May 2003. The Ethical Standards in Public Life etc (Scotland) Act 2000 (Register of Interests) Regulations 2003 (SSI/2003/135), made on 5 March 2003, stipulates that the register should be open to public inspection at an office of the applicable council or devolved public body at all reasonable hours and without charge.
