The provisions and procedures set forth in sections 4905.26 and 4927.21 of the Revised Code, and Chapters 4901-1 and 4901-9 of the Administrative Code, shall apply. The commission shall issue a decision resolving issue(s) presented in a complaint filed pursuant to this rule within a reasonable time not to exceed three hundred sixty days after the filing of the complaint.
