Process and methods
9 Rejected appeals
If all grounds of appeal have been rejected following scrutiny, an oral or written appeal will not be held. The appellant(s), and consultees and commentators will be informed of the rejected appeal, and the newly anticipated guidance publication date. NICE will publish a notice on its website announcing that an appeal had been received but was rejected during the scrutiny stage at least 2 working days after consultees and commentators are informed. At the same time, the appeal letter(s), scrutiny letters and responses to these letters will be placed on the NICE website.
