Must appointment and removal of pension trustees be done by deed?

Must appointment and removal of trustees be done by deed? The current scheme rules give the employer the power to appoint and remove trustees and this power states that this be done by deed. We are looking to change the amendment power in the rules, which currently states that any amendment must be done by deed, to require amendments to be done by written resolution. We want to change the appointment and removal power to reflect the same (to be done by written resolution). Is there are formal legal requirement which prevents us from doing so?
