Code, may also be raised under the unfair labor practice procedure.
    (b) An allegation that unfair labor practices have been committed 
shall be subject to the procedures appearing in subpart B of this part 
for the filing of charges, investigation by the General Counsel, and the 
Board's disposition, except as set forth in paragraphs (c) and (d) of 
this section.
    (c) Except as provided in paragraph (d) of this section, no petition 
for review may be filed based on any alleged unfair labor practice which 
occurred more than 6 months before the filing of an unfair labor 
practice charge with the charged party, as provided in paragraph 14b of 
GAO Order 2711.1, or more than 9 months before the filing of a charge 
with the General Counsel.
    (d) If the Board determines that the charging party was prevented 
from filing the charge during the 6-month period referred to in 
paragraph (c) of this section by reason of:
    (1) Any failure of the charged party to perform a duty owed to the 
charging party; or
    (2) Any concealment which prevented discovery of the alleged unfair 
labor practice during the 6-month period; the charge will be considered 
timely filed, provided it was filed with the charged party during the 6-
month period beginning on the day of the discovery of the alleged unfair 
labor practice by the charging party.
