The Scottish Premier League will vote next month on whether to dock points from clubs going into administration.
The Football League in England recently took the decision to take 10 points off clubs who go into administration.
Motherwell and Dundee are currently in such a position, which some feel is a get-out for financial mismanagement.
The issue was discussed at an SPL board meeting on Thursday when there was also a mixed reaction to a Uefa proposal to use foreign referees for big games.
Dunfermline chairman John Yorkston said after the meeting that he felt such a move was "an extravagance the game can do without".
