Island hosts Registry Workshop



The Isle of Man has played host to delegates from the Company Registries of the UK, Jersey, Guernsey, Northern Ireland, Gibraltar and the European Register.

They were all here for the Common Law Companies Registry Workshop.

The annual event is held in a different jurisdiction each year and is an important forum to discuss challenges facing the Company Registries of the UK and the Crown Dependencies.

The theme for this year's workshop was "Transparency and Trust" in response to the UK government's discussion paper of the same name which was issued following the G8 conference in July.

Topics discussed included extending the roles of the Registries and issues arising from electronic transactions, especially document retention and document disposal.

Alan Crowe MLC, Political Member of the DED with responsibility for the Companies Registry, says the role of the Registries in supporting economic growth cannot be overstated and working in such forums is vital in helping tackle the challenges they face.
