23 § (1) A discussion about the PhD thesis should be settled at work. The workplace debate is organised by the supervisor or PhD program leader or a person appointed by him. At least five academically qualified researchers must participate in the workplace debate. A record of the workplace dispute must be drawn up on the form specified in the Repository of Forms and attached when submitting the PhD thesis. In extremely justified cases, the holding of a workplace debate may be waived on the proposal of the head of the Doctoral Division with the permission of the President of the University Doctoral Council (UDC).
