The Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) requires advocates representing foreign interests to register with the Department of Justice and to file within 48 hours any informational materials disseminated to two or more individuals. POGO's Foreign Influence Database was based on informational materials filed between 2009 and 2012 by lobbying and public relations firms working on behalf of foreign entities in the U.S.
