Interlocutory revision
202
If the department whose decision is contested considers an appeal to be admissible and well founded, it must rectify its decision within three months of receiving the statement of grounds. If the appeal is not allowed within that period, it must be remitted to the board of appeal without delay.  
Interlocutory revision is not possible where the appellant is opposed by another party to the proceedings (in particular in opposition proceedings).
