Section 62 – Duty to notify Commission of bankruptcy etc.
198.Section 62 provides that a judicial officer must notify the Commission in writing, within 28 days, of any one of the public acts of bankruptcy and related events listed in subsection (2). Most of the events listed apply to bankruptcies and insolvencies in Scotland. However, paragraph (e) (the making of a disqualification order under the Company Directors Disqualification Act 1986) applies on a UK-basis. Section 67(9)(d) provides that failure to notify is misconduct. Notification can be given electronically under section 78(b).
