Abstract
The Malaysian legislature recently passed the Companies (Amendment) Act 2007 which introduced significant and far-reaching changes for Malaysian companies. In particular, important changes were made to the law relating to directors' statutory and common law duties. Among the changes are the codification of certain common law principles relating to directors' duties and the introduction of new concepts such as the Business Judgement Rule. There is also an attempt to provide statutory clarification as to the role and function of the board of directors in a company. The central theme of these amendments appears to be the implementation of a strong and effective corporate governance regime in Malaysia. Needless to say, these reforms are consistent with the objective of the Malaysian corporate law reform programme to modernise the present legislative framework and to facilitate an effective and competitive business environment in Malaysia. This paper examines some of the provisions in the Companies (Amendment) Act 2007 which relate to directors' statutory and common law duties and considers their implications on the corporate law regime in Malaysia.
