(a) After an appellate decision has been promulgated on a claim, a claimant may file a supplemental claim with the agency of original jurisdiction by submitting the prescribed form with new and relevant evidence related to the previously adjudicated claim as set forth in §3.2601 of this chapter, except in cases involving simultaneously contested claims under Subpart E of this part.
(Authority: 38 U.S.C. 5108, 7104)
(b) Legacy appeals pending on the effective date. For legacy appeals as defined in §19.2 of this chapter, where prior to the effective date described in Rule 4 (§20.4), an appellant requested that a claim be reopened after an appellate decision has been promulgated and submitted evidence in support thereof, a determination as to whether such evidence is new and material must be made and, if it is, as to whether it provides a basis for allowing the claim. An adverse determination as to either question is appealable.
(Authority: 38 U.S.C. 5108, 7104 (2016))
