354 - What is the process to follow if I disagree with a reviewer's ruling and want to challenge it further?

  • The "Submission guidance document" on the PAAB website outlines the escalation process. For your convenience, I have pasted the relevant segment below. The policy is intended to ensure that the reviewer has had a fair chance to resolve the matter and consult internally if necessary. Here is the excerpt: Escalation requests will be accepted only after having discussed a written review comment with the PAAB Reviewer, responding in writing and receiving a subsequent PAAB letter about the same issue. If you wish to escalate an issue regarding and eFile, please contact PAAB administrators with a detailed reason for the request, the eFile # and points to be discusses, and the requestors contact information. The administrator will forward the request to the appropriate PAAB personel.
