A. Generally
1. At any time subsequent to the filing of an application, the Board, on its own motion or at the request of any party, may hold a prehearing conference, for the purpose of determining a date for the close of discovery, simplifying issues, considering admissions of fact and documents, limiting the number of expert witnesses, scheduling the filing of exhibits, testimony, and briefs, scheduling public hearings and such other matters as the Board shall deem appropriate.
2. At or before a pre-hearing conference, the Board may order a party to file copies of exhibits, names and addresses of all witnesses it intends to call in its direct case, together with a short statement of the purposes of each exhibit and of the testimony of each witness. After the entry of such an order, a party shall not be permitted, except in the discretion of the Board, to introduce into evidence in its direct case exhibits which are not filed in accordance with the order.
3. At the conference the Board may also designate a date before which it requires any party in interest to specify what items shown by filed exhibits are conceded. Further proof of such conceded items will not be required.
