First Public Draft of IOH Principles

On 15 April 2014 at the Farewell conference to professor Bob Wessels we had the opportunity to present the first public draft of the Principles for Insolvency Office Holders in Europe (IOH-project) to a mixed audience of practitioners, judges, academics, and students.

B. Santen and P. Godfrey     

While generally underlined by the audience, some Principles gave reason to a lively discussion. The difference of opinion on the conflicts of interests issue clearly showed that the Principles and Best Practices (the latter not yet available in public draft) will enhance the professional consciousness of IOHs over Europe.
