UK: company directors, mental health and the model articles

The Mental Health (Discrimination) Act 2013 received Royal Assent last month: see here. A copy of the Act is available here or here (pdf). Section 3 of the Act amends the Companies (Model Articles) Regulations 2008, the RTM Companies (Model Articles) (England) Regulations 2009 and the RTM Companies (Model Articles) (Wales) Regulations 2011, by removing the provision in the articles providing for termination of the director's appointment on grounds of mental health.

Update (5 May 2013) - a short overview of the change has been published by Companies House: see here.
