Can a non-executive director be disqualified?

Director disqualification and non-executive directors

The general rule is that non-executive directors who fail to take part in the management of the affairs of the company can also be director disqualified for unfitness. A non-executive director, as any other conventional director, can be disqualified for incompetence or any other finding of unfitness.

As a rule of thumb, non-executive directors in larger organisations are likely to be at less risk than those attached to smaller organisations. In larger organisations, non-executive directors are invited to attend board meetings and receive regular (and often better prepared) management information. However, there is still a duty on the non-executive director to ensure that the information before him at a board meeting is accurate and that directors act properly in determining how to deal with any issues which may give cause for concern.
