The IoD is a voluntary professional association of people committed to promoting the highest standards of governance in New Zealand.
The legal duties of a corporate director are outlined in the Companies Act 1993. Breaches of the Act may be prosecuted in the courts by regulatory agencies.
The Code of Practice
We ask members to read and adhere to the IoD's Code of Practice for Directors. This provides guidance to help you carry out your governance duties to the highest standards.
Chartered members are also required to confirm the The Charter when they renew their membership annually.
Termination of membership
As the professional body for directors it is our responsibility to promote standards. If a member of the IoD acts in a manner that compromises or is likely to compromise the IoD or its members the IoD may terminate their membership. For more information, see Rules 4.8 and 9 of The Constitution.
If you have a complaint about a current IoD member, contact us.
