Canon 182

1. Candidates suitable for the episcopate can be proposed only

by members of the synod of bishops of the patriarchal Church who

can, according to the norm of particular law, collect information

and documents which are necessary to establish the suitability of

the candidates, hearing, if they think it appropriate, secretly

and individually, certain presbyters or also other Christian

faithful outstanding in prudence and Christian life. 2. The

bishops are to report their findings to the patriarch at a suitable time prior to the convocation of the synod of bishops of the

patriarchal Church. The patriarch, if the case warrants it, adding his own additional information, transmits the matter to all

the members of the synod. 3. Unless particular law approved by

the Roman Pontiff states otherwise, the synod of bishops of the

patriarchal Church is to examine the names of the candidates and

compile a list of the candidates by secret ballot, which is to be

transmitted through the patriarch to the Apostolic See to obtain

the assent of the Roman Pontiff. 4. The assent of the Roman

Pontiff once given for an individual candidate is valid until it

has been explicitly revoked, in which case the name of the candidate is to be removed from the list.
