10. A candidate who is informed of the board of director’s decision not to grant the equivalence applied for or to grant it in part may apply to the board of directors for a review, provided that the candidate applies to the secretary in writing within 30 days of receiving the decision and submits the fees determined under paragraph 8 of section 86.0.1 of the Professional Code (chapter C-26). The secretary must forward the application to the committee formed by the board of directors under paragraph 2 of section 86.0.1 of the Professional Code to examine review applications for diploma or training equivalence. The committee is composed of persons other than members of the board of directors or the committee referred to in section 8.
The committee must meet and examine the application within 60 days following the date of receipt of the application by the secretary and, before disposing of the application, allow the candidate to make submissions at the meeting.
A candidate who wishes to be present at the meeting to make submissions must notify the secretary at least 5 days before the date set for the meeting. The candidate may, however, send written submissions to the secretary at any time before the date set for the meeting.
The decision of the committee is final and must be sent to the candidate in writing by registered mail within 30 days following the date of the decision. The board of directors must also be informed of the committee’s decision.
