43. The candidate informed of the decision of the committee not to grant the requested equivalence or to grant it only partially may ask for this decision to be reviewed on condition that the review is requested in writing to the secretary of the committee within 30 days of receipt of this decision.
The executive committee, at the first regular meeting following the receipt of such a request, must examine the request for review. Before reaching a decision, it must allow the candidate to submit observations to this meeting.
For this purpose, the secretary of the committee informs the candidate of the date, place and time of the meeting during which the request will be reviewed by means of written notice sent by registered mail at least 15 days before the meeting is held.
A candidate who wishes to be present to make observations must so inform the secretary of the committee at least 5 days before the date planned for the meeting. The candidate may however send written observations to the secretary of the committee at any time before the date planned for the meeting.
