790H: Duty to update information

419.Section 790H complements section 790E, requiring a registrable person or RLE to notify the company of relevant changes to information in the PSC register. The intention is to ensure that changes to information in the PSC register that are not known to or identified by the company are nevertheless recorded, thereby supporting the accuracy of the company’s PSC register.

420.The obligation arises where the person is entered in the company’s PSC register and knows or ought reasonably to know that a relevant change has occurred, a relevant change being defined in section 790E(3); and where the company’s PSC register has not been altered to reflect the change and the person has not received notice from the company under section 790E within one month of the day on which the change occurred (subsection (1)). As under section 790G, this means that a person’s obligation will normally only arise where the company is not already aware of the change. The person may however inform the company in advance should they wish to do so.

421.The notification must state the date on which the change occurred and provide any information needed by the company to update the register (subsection (2)). The notification must be given by the later of two months after the change occurred (providing one month for the company to send a notice and then one month for the person to make a notification if required) or one month after the person discovered the change. The latter may arise if the person only became aware of the change some time after it had occurred.
