Every decision under subsection 1 of section 2 and every decision under sections 5 and 8 rendered by a review board in accordance with section 64 of the Workmen’s Compensation Act is subject to appeal before the Commission des affaires sociales, which shall dispose of it in accordance with its rules of proof, procedure and practice.
The appeal shall be lodged within 90 days of notification of the decision. The Commission des affaires sociales may however allow a person to act after the expiry of such delay if that person shows that it was in fact impossible for him to act sooner.
