Mandatory reconsiderations

Appeals and mandatory reconsideration

You normally have one calendar month from the date the decision is sent to you to ask for the decision to be looked at again. If you have missed the one-month deadline, you may be able to ask for a late revision.

A decision maker will look at your reconsideration request and, if they agree with it, they will revise the decision.

Once a decision has been reconsidered, the decision maker will send you two copies of a ‘mandatory reconsideration notice’ to let you know the outcome. You will need the extra copy of the notice if you wish to appeal.
