 My question is if we can have this discussion after an 
opponents has called. Suppose our opponent opens 
1NT and we have not taken our hands out of the board. 
On one hand, it doesn't seem fair that we can now 
discuss our defenses to a 1NT opening; on the other 
hand, perhaps our opponent should have waited for us 
to look at our cards before opening the bidding.
+=+ Among the places one may look to resolve this 
question I can think of these:  
       Law 73A1;  and see Definitions - 'Auction' (1). 
       Law 40A1(b) and any regulations authorized by it.
