Q125. Reconsideration by Examiner before Appeal
 Explain reconsideration by examiner before appeal.

A125. Reconsideration by examiner before appeal is an examination carried out by an Examiner, usually same one in a previous examination, to judge whether or not a decision of rejection shall be annulled. The reconsideration shall be executed when claims, specifications or figures have been amended together with the filing the appeal.
 The Examiner will grant a patent when the previous decision of rejection should be annulled, while, if it is not the case, he won’t make a final decision and entrusts the appeal case to the appeal examination by appeal examiners.
