As part of the adoption of a restructuring or recovery plan, the court may decide to render inalienable certain property (equipment), for a fixed term.

This property can therefore not be transferred by a business under a plan, the information with respect to which is assured by publication of security status in the register. All instruments passed in violation of inalienability must be terminated on the demand of all interested parties or of the Public Ministry, within 3 years from the conclusion of the instrument (Article L. 626-14 of the Commercial Code). Publication must be made on the initiative of the officer responsible for execution of the plan (Article R. 626-25 of the Commercial Code). The competent court clerk is such as is in the jurisdiction of the debtor, if a legal entity, at its headquarters, or if an individual, at the declared address of the business or business activity (Article R. 626-26 of the Commercial Code).
