Those Regulations have been revoked by the Insolvency Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1996, S.R. 1996 No. 574.

(b)make provision for the submission to the Department of Economic Development (“the Department”) by the trustee under each deed of an account of his receipts and payments as trustee (regulations 4 and 5).

The Regulations also specify the particulars to be recorded in the register of deeds in addition to those matters already provided for in Article 212 of the 1989 Order (regulation 6).
