This Article prescribes the way in which an application to the Official Receiver for a DRO is to be made. The application must be made through an approved intermediary. The term “approved intermediary” is defined later in Article 208U. The Article sets out some of the detail about the individual’s affairs which must be included in a application for a DRO, and makes provision for insolvency rules made under Article 359 to prescribe the form and manner in which the application should be made and the information which must be supplied in support of it.
