The procedure of including and deleting from the list of trustees will be determined by Minister of Justice by a special by-law.

Bankruptcy trustee is obliged to treat their work responsibly and with care. Work of bankruptcy trustee is oversaw by the bankruptcy judge, a committee of creditors and assembly of creditors, which are authorized to request information or reports about the current situation and management at any time.
