Canon 85

1. For a serious reason, with the consent of the synod of

bishops of the patriarchal Church and having consulted the Apostolic See, the patriarch can establish provinces and eparchies,

modify their boundaries, unite, divide, suppress, and modify

their hierarchical status and transfer the eparchial see. 2.

With the consent of the synod of bishops of the patriarchal

Church, the patriarch is competent: (1) to give to an eparchial

bishop a coadjutor bishop or auxiliary bishop, observing cann.

181, 1 and 182-187 and 212; (2) for a grave reason, to transfer

a metropolitan, eparchial bishop or titular bishop to another

metropolitan, eparchial or titular see; if the bishop refuses,

the synod of bishops of the patriarchal Church is to resolve the

matter or defer it to the Roman Pontiff. 3. With the consent

of the permanent synod, the patriarch can erect, modify and suppress exarchies. 4. The patriarch is to notify the Apostolic

See of these decisions as soon as possible.
