The bankruptcy manager is a citizen of the Russian Federation who is a member of one of self-regulating organisations of bankruptcy managers. The bankruptcy manager is a professional-activity agent who is pursuing the professional activity regulated by the Russian Bankruptcy Federal Law by means of private practices. A bankruptcy manager is entitled to pursue other types of professional activity and also entrepreneurial activity, unless such activity affects the appropriate execution of the duties thereof established by  Federal Law. A bankruptcy manager is only entitled to be member in one self-regulating organisation of bankruptcy managers.

A self-regulating organisation of bankruptcy managers shall establish the following compulsory conditions for membership in it:

The declared self-regulating organisation is not entitled to nominate a bankruptcy manager who has no state secret clearance of the established form if the availability of such clearance is a condition sine qua non for the arbitration court to confirm the bankruptcy manager.

Within two days and seven days respectively from the date of receipt of the arbitration court ruling on acceptance of the application for deeming the debtor bankrupt the debtor and the territorial body of the federal executive governmental body charged with security matters shall provide information to the arbitration court and to the declared self-regulating organisation of bankruptcy managers on the state secret clearance form of the head of the debtor and on the degree of secrecy of the information circulating at the debtor's enterprise or on the lack of such clearance or such information.
