Afterwards the finalization of the bill continued in the conciliatory committee. During this process, the following regulations were appeared: the lock of access to third parties to data on overdue debts and multiple appeals on bankruptcy cases by different bankruptcy creditors and authorized bodies. Besides, according to the amendments, the provision of information through the personal account is available; moreover, the creditors are obligated to notify the debtors about attraction of third parties (collectors) to debt repayment. The creditor must send the notice within 30 working days from the date of attraction of the collector. The relevant information should be placed in the Unified Register. The Unified Register should contain the data on creditors, collectors, numbers and dates of contracts on their attraction to debt collection as well as passport data and debtor’s tax number. At the same time, the specified data cannot be available on the open Internet.

The data on all enforcement proceedings starting from January 2012 is available in the relevant section of the Information and Analytical system Globas.
