Section 5. Resource Persons
If the Panel agrees that it further needs to understand and appreciate the evidence presented and requires more in-depth information on the matters of the case, it may defer its decision on the case.
The Panel may re-convene and invite technical experts, trade professionals, consumer groups, etc., to render expert opinion on a case. If reviewed previously by a Screening Panel or a Professional Screener, the Chairman of the Screening Panel or the Professional Screener may be invited to provide his/her perspective on the previous decision. The invited participant/s shall not vote.
The Panel, however, must render a decision within three (3) work days after reconvening.
