Section 40: Directors’ remuneration
58.Section 40 requires companies which are also licence holders under the Act to disclose the links, if any, between the achievement of service standards in the activities covered by their licence and the remuneration of their directors. If no such links exist, this must also be disclosed. The section sets out the criteria for determining whether a licence holder must comply with the provisions of the section and the disclosure requirements which then apply. The requirement to disclose what links, if any, exist between service standards and remuneration is intended to encourage companies to establish and strengthen such links and to stimulate improvement to service standards.
