Director Disqualification has three distinct bands:
(i) A lower category of 2-5 years.
This largely relates to reckless or negligent conduct as a director in breach of his director responsibilities.
(ii) A mid category of 6-10 years.
This is classed as serious, and relates to conduct which is more directly prejudicial to the public interest.
(iii) The highest category of 11-15 years.
This conduct is the most serious and generally relates to fraudulent or otherwise serious (sometimes criminal) behaviour.
