microscopic reversibility

When can we assume that a reaction has microscopic reversibility?

we can assume that a reaction has microscopic reversibility when the reaction has the same intermediates (same pathway) in a forward and reverse reaction. Also I don't think we need to know a lot about this topic but I may be wrong.

You can assume microscopic reversibility when the rate of the forward reaction and the rate of the reverse reaction are equal during equilibrium.

Microscopic reversibilty refers to the reactions having the same intermediates in the forward and reverse reactions.
