Director Duties, Role and Responsibilities (including Non-Executive Directors) 1 Day Course
There are many laws and regulations that apply to Board Directors. The Companies Act 2006 places many legal requirements upon companies and their Board Directors, some of which are grouped together as The Seven Statutory Duties of Directors:
• To act within their powers
• To promote the success of the company
• To exercise independent judgement
• To exercise reasonable care, skill and diligence
• To avoid conflicts of interest
• Not to accept benefits from third parties
• To declare any interest in a proposed transaction or arrangement
There are many other requirements of the Companies Act 2006 and there are other laws relevant to Board Directors. The legal compliance issues for directors seem to be being constantly increased.
