Last revision: April 10, 1992 §1614.407 Reconsideration. (a) Within a reasonable period of time, the Commission may, in its discretion, reconsider any decision of the Commission issued under 1614.405(a) notwithstanding any other provisions of this part. (b) A party may request reconsideration of any decision issued under 1614.405(a) provided that such request is made within 30 days of receipt of a decision of the Commission or within 20 days of receipt of another party's timely request for reconsideration. Such request, along with any supporting statement or brief, shall be submitted to the Office of Review and Appeals and to all parties with proof of such submission. All other parties shall have 20 days from the date of service in which to submit all other parties, with proof of submission, any statement or brief in opposition to the request. (c) The request or the statement or brief in support of the request shall contain arguments or evidence which tend to establish that: (1) New and material evidence is available that was not readily available when the previous decision was issued; or (2) The previous decision involved an erroneous interpretation of law, regulation or material fact, or misapplication of established policy; or (3) The decision is of such exceptional nature as to have substantial precedential implications. (d) A decision on a request for reconsideration by either party is final and there is no further right by either party to request reconsideration of the decision for which reconsideration was sought.
