Article 40
Duty to inform creditors

Article 42

For that purpose a form shall be used bearing the heading 'Invitation to lodge a claim. Time limits to be observed' in all the official languages of the institutions of the European Union.
  2.

In addition, he may be required to provide a translation into the official language or one of the official languages of the State of the opening of proceedings.
