Part 3: a Company’s Constitution

62.This Part deals with various matters relating to a company’s constitution. It replaces similar provisions in the 1985 Act. It starts by defining (non-exhaustively) “a company’s constitution” and then makes provision about the main constituent parts of a company’s constitution (the articles of association and certain classes of members’ resolutions and agreements), including their legal effects, how they are to be notified to the registrar and made available to members, and how changes to them are to be dealt with.
