Register of directors

Every company must keep a register of directors giving names, former names, addresses, nationalities, business occupations, dates of birth and other directorships held. A copy of this register is sent to the Registrar of Companies, who must also be notified of any alterations.

The 1981 Companies Act included an additional requirement that the register should contain, in relation to each director named, all previous directorships held during the preceding five years unless those directorships were in dormant companies or within the same group as the present company.
