Current through December, 23, 2021

A. By Parties
1. Except as provided in § 1.31(A)(3) of this Part, at any time after the conclusion of a hearing in a proceeding, but before issuance of a decision, any party to the proceeding may, for good cause shown, move to reopen the proceedings for the purpose of taking additional evidence. Copies of such motion shall be served upon all participants or their attorneys of record, and shall set forth clearly the facts claimed to constitute grounds requiring reopening of the proceedings, including material changes of fact or law alleged to have occurred since the conclusion of the hearing, and shall in all other respects conform to the applicable requirements of §§ 1.17 through 1.20 of this Part.
2. Within ten (10) days following the service of such motion, or such shorter or longer time as the Board or the presiding officer may order, any other party to the proceedings may file an objection thereto, and in default thereof shall be deemed to have waived any objections to the granting of such petition.
3. The Board will not consider any motion to reopen filed within ten (10) days before the expiration of the time in which the Board must issue a Final or Preliminary Decision.
B. By the Board - At any time prior to the filing of a decision, after notice to the parties and opportunity to be heard, the Board may reopen the proceeding for the receipt of additional evidence on its own motion, if the Board has reason to believe that conditions of fact or of law have so changed as to require, or that the public interest requires, the reopening of such proceeding.
