Abstract

In recent times, the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) – the UK’s Competition Regulator has sought to disqualify Company Directors for Breach of Competition Law using a little-known power in the Company Directors Disqualification Act 1986. This power, introduced in the early 2000s, has been invoked in, at least, thirteen cases over the last four years. The practical effect of the CMA’s disqualification regime is the prohibition of concerned persons from carrying out functions of the kind exercised by an ordinary company director. This article attempts to draw key lessons from the CMA’s director disqualification regime. It also highlights practical difficulties for the CMA in maximising the deterrent potential of the regime.
