A disqualified person is a Responsible Person, such as a board or committee member, that may not be eligible to serve on the board of a charity. Reasons for disqualification include being convicted of certain offences, bankruptcy or personal insolvency agreements, or disqualification by a court or regulator.

Under Governance Standard 4, charities must be satisfied that their Responsible People are not disqualified from managing a corporation.

See our guidance about disqualification from being a Responsible Person.
