11 U.S. Code § 1517 - Order granting recognition
Order granting recognition
(a) Subject to section 1506, after notice and a hearing, an order recognizing a foreign proceeding shall be entered if—
such foreign proceeding for which recognition is sought is a foreign main proceeding or foreign nonmain proceeding within the meaning of section 1502;
(b) Such foreign proceeding shall be recognized—
as a foreign main proceeding if it is pending in the country where the debtor has the center of its main interests; or
A petition for recognition of a foreign proceeding shall be decided upon at the earliest possible time. Entry of an order recognizing a foreign proceeding constitutes recognition under this chapter.
The provisions of this subchapter do not prevent modification or termination of recognition if it is shown that the grounds for granting it were fully or partially lacking or have ceased to exist, but in considering such action the court shall give due weight to possible prejudice to parties that have relied upon the order granting recognition. A case under this chapter may be closed in the manner prescribed under section 350.
