Rules and Federal Register Notices E-mail Updates E-Mail Updates
After Congressional bills become laws, Federal Departments and Agencies are responsible for implementing those laws through regulations. Regulations are developed through the Federal rulemaking process. In general, Departments and Agencies publish proposed rules for public comment in the Federal Register for at least 30 days. At the conclusion of the comment period, Departments or Agencies consider the public comments received and then issue a final rule (which is also published in the Federal Register).

Current Rules issued by the U.S. Trustee Program are provided here in PDF format and are also available online at Regulations.gov.

Notice of Proposed Rulemaking:

Docket No. EOUST 105
Procedures for Completing Uniform Periodic Reports in Non-Small Business Cases Filed Under Chapter 11 of Title 11; Proposed Periodic Reports and Instructions

The proposed rule sets forth procedures and criteria that non-small debtors in possession and trustees shall use when accounting for the receipt, administration, and disposition of property, and providing information about the estate and its business, including statements of receipts and disbursements, as required by 11 U.S.C. §§ 1106(a)(1) and 1107(a). The proposed rule was published in the Federal Register and is available for review at www.regulations.gov. The proposed Periodic Report forms and instructions are not published in the Federal Register, but are available for review at the links below. Comments to the proposed rule, forms and instructions will be accepted for 60 days, through January 9, 2015, and should be submitted to www.regulations.gov. The United States Trustee Program will review the public comments and other information and will issue a Final Rule when that process is completed.

Note: Debtors in possession and trustees will be required to use the reports in all chapter 11 cases that are not small business cases. However, until this proposed rule becomes final and effective, all non-small business debtors should continue to use the periodic reporting forms currently in use in their respective jurisdictions.
