• Fed Register #: 55:13218
• Title: Rules of Practice and Procedure for Administrative Hearings Before the Office of Administrative Law Judges

Abstract:

This notice sets forth the Rules of Evidence to be used for formal adjudicatory hearings before the Office of Administrative Law Judges. The previous regulations provided no clear guidance as to the admissibility of evidence in administrative proceedings, resulting in uncertainty as to which documents and testimony may constitute the record in a particular matter. These Rules of Evidence modify the Federal Rules of Evidence for application in formal adversarial adjudicatory hearings, and will provide necessary guidance as to the admissibility of evidence in formal adjudicatory hearings. These rules shall be effective after May 9, 1990, except that with respect to hearings held following an investigation conducted by the U.S. DOL, these rules shall be effective only where the investigation commenced after 5/9/90. Contact: Deputy Chief Judge John M. Vittone, 653-5052.
