ACTING UPON AN EARLIER APPLICATION THAT WAS REJECTED

If his earlier application was rejected, the applicant may, within 30 days of the publication of the decision rejecting the earlier application, submit a new application, remediate any established deficiencies and pay half of the fee prescribed for the subject registration. In that case, the applicant should submit:

  • a new, duly completed registration application, which shall state the number of the decision rejecting the earlier application (the new application should be fully complete, and not partially complete, given that this is a new application for registration);
  • the missing and/or rectified documentation (if the rejecting decision specified the documentation that was not enclosed and/or the deficiencies of the enclosed documentation);

Important notes:

If the applicant acts upon an earlier application that was rejected, the number of the earlier application that was rejected must be stated on the first page of the application. Otherwise, the Registrar shall consider the submitted application as a new application and shall assess the compliance with registration requirements only based on the documentation accompanying it.

If the applicant files a new application while at the same time filing an appeal against the decision on rejection, it will be deemed that no action was taken to complete the missing requirements and the appeals procedure will run its course.
