Title: Uniform Forms for Periodic Reports for Chapter 11 Cases 

28 U.S.C. 589b authorizes the Attorney General to issue rules requiring uniform forms for periodic reports by debtors in possession and trustees in chapter 11 cases. These reports are to be used by the United States Trustee Program to facilitate oversight and monitoring of chapter 11 cases as well as to provide information to the courts, creditors, and public about the debtor's operations while under chapter 11 reorganization. Among the purposes for uniform forms is to accomplish the collection of data required by Congress that will be "in the best interests of debtors and creditors and in the public interest in reasonable and adequate information to evaluate the efficiency and practicality of the Federal bankruptcy system." 28 U.S.C. 589b(c).
