After identifying the significant controllers in your company, you should enter the content into a Significant Controllers Register, keep it up-to-date, and make it available for inspection. It is important to note that certain details must be included in SCR:

• The ‘required particulars’ of every significant controller of the company.
The ‘required particulars’ include name, nature of control over the company, and the date of their becoming a significant controller.

• The particulars of any registrable change with respect to each of its significant controllers.
A registrable change includes a significant controller’s cessation as a significant controller, and changes rendering the particulars already entered incorrect or incomplete.

• The name and contact details of your designated representative.
The company must designate a representative to serve as the contact for providing information on the SCR and related assistance to law enforcement officers.

The required particulars of a registrable person or registrable legal entity must be entered in the SCR in a timely manner, within 7 days after all the particulars have been provided or confirmed.
