  1. The authority will check your application

If you submit application for reexamination of the case, enforcement of your decision will be suspended. This rule shall not apply if:  
1) the decision is immediately enforceable (authority may give such strictness itself or at your request to any decision which can be appealed against, if this is necessary for example to protect health or human life), 
2) the decision is immediately enforceable under the law (e.g. the decision issued by the state sanitary inspector, who during the inspection detected breaches of hygiene and health requirements).  
The decision will also be implemented prior to the expiry of the time-limit for filing an application for a case review, when its content is in line with the request of all parties or if all the parties waived the right to a reexamination of the case.  
 
The authority which will handle the case may, in justified cases, suspend the immediate enforcement of the decision.
