Co-operatives and Community Benefit Societies Act 2003 Extended to Northern Ireland

The Industrial and Provident Societies (Northern Ireland) Order 2006 SI 2006/314
extends to Northern Ireland industrial and provident societies the provisions introduced in Great Britain by the Industrial and Provident Societies Act 2002 and the Co-operatives and Community Societies Act 2003. The Order applies in Northern Ireland from a date yet to be appointed. Interestingly, the order also applies the Company Director Disqualification order to NI I & P societies - the GB Company Director Disqualification Act 1986 does not apply to GB I & P society Directors.
