Advisory Committee Notes:

The purpose of this rule is to standardize the claims bar date for all chapter 11 cases, including, but not limited to cases under subchapter V. Extensions of time to file proofs of claim in chapter 11 cases are governed by Fed. R. Bankr. P. 3003(c)(3). Any order granting such an extension shall designate the party required to provide notice to creditors of the extended deadline. The rule does not change the operation of 11 U.S.C. § 1111(a) or Fed. R. Bankr. P. 3003(b)(1) or (c)(2) as to claims scheduled by the debtor as undisputed, non-contingent, and liquidated.
