This subchapter, chapter 7, and sections
7521 of this title, and the provisions of section
5335(a)(B) of this title that relate to administrative law judges, do not limit or repeal additional requirements imposed by statute or otherwise recognized by law. Except as otherwise required by law, requirements or privileges relating to evidence or procedure apply equally to agencies and persons. Each agency is granted the authority necessary to comply with the requirements of this subchapter through the issuance of rules or otherwise.

5335(a)(B) of this title that relate to administrative law judges, except to the extent that it does so expressly.
In the first and last sentences, the words “This subchapter, chapter 7, and sections
7521, and the provisions of section
5335(a)(B) of this title that relate to hearing examiners” are substituted for “this Act” to reflect the codification of the Act in this title. The words “to diminish the constitutional rights of any person or” are omitted as surplusage as there is nothing in the Act that can reasonably be construed to diminish those rights and because a statute may not operate in derogation of the Constitution.
The third sentence of former section
1011 is omitted as covered by technical section
7. The sixth sentence of former section
1011 is omitted as executed.
