Stage 5: Anonymized publication

Substantive advisory reports including the accompanying EB decision are posted in anonymized form on the VSNU website after the LOWI appeal deadline has expired without an appeal having been made by either party.

If either party has appealed to the LOWI and the LOWI accepts the appeal for consideration, parties must await the outcome of the LOWI procedure. The LOWI presents its opinion to the EB. Based on this opinion, the EB once again makes a final decision. This decision may differ from the previous decision, but not necessarily. The LOWI posts its opinions in anonymized form on the LOWI website. The CWI’s advisory report, together with a summary of the LOWI’s opinion and the second EB decision, are all posted in anonymized form on the VSNU website after completion of the LOWI procedure.
