The Flemish Region can recover these costs by means of an enforcement order. The enforcement order will be signed and declared enforceable by the competent authority.
The enforcement order is subject to the provisions of part V of the Legal Code on the sequestering of property and means of enforcement.
The enforcement order is served on the debtor in the form of a writ of summons.
Within a period of thirty days of the date of receipt of the enforcement order, the debtor is entitled to lodge a protest with Flemish Region.
This protest suspends the enforcement. The Flemish Region can request that the court remove the suspension of enforcement.
