THE Institute of Directors, led by director general Miles Templeman, has warned that board members are struggling to cope with the amount of new regulation, in guidelines published today.

The Director’s Handbook includes advice on dealing with the reams of law and regulation that have been introduced since the credit crisis.

Since the last edition was printed in 2007, the Companies Act 2006 has taken full effect. This codifies the duties of directors and affects a number of areas from conflicts of interest to social responsibility.
