A director may be an individual or another legal entity (such as a company). If the director is an individual, he or she may hold office provided that:
• he or she has not been disqualified by a court from being a director (a court can overturn previous disqualifications)
• he or she is not an undischarged bankrupt (unless allowed by a court)
• he or she is not under the age of 16.

Any appointment must comply with the company’s articles of association.
