§ 49. Appeals.

(a) Any applicant who is aggrieved by any action of any of the board's committees or its staff may appeal from such action to the board. The appeal shall be filed within 24 months of the action being appealed or the mailing of written notification from the board, whichever is later. Two signed copies of the appeal shall be mailed or delivered to the office of the California Board of Accountancy. The appeal shall contain the following information:
(1) The name, business address and residence address of the applicant making the appeal.
(2) The action being appealed from and the date of any written notification from the board.
(3) A summary of the basis for the appeal, including any information which the applicant believes was not given adequate consideration by the committee or staff.
(b) The board will consider only appeals based on information previously considered by its committees or staff. If the applicant wishes to submit for consideration additional evidence or information not previously submitted to the board's committee or staff, such additional information should be submitted directly to the committee or staff within the request that its previous action be reconsidered. An appeal based on evidence or information not previously submitted to the committee or staff will be referred by the board to the appropriate committee or staff for further consideration.
