(2) The Board shall determine whether to reopen the declaratory ruling.
(3) The Board may summarily deny an application for revision.

(d) Withdraws its determination to reopen.
(6) If the Board determines to reopen the declaratory ruling, the Board shall give the applicant notice of the determination and of any subsequent changes to the declaratory ruling. The determination to reopen a declaratory ruling does not confer any procedural rights on the applicant.
