6.6 - Closing the Record

(a) After Hearing

When a hearing is held in an OCAHO case, the record will be closed at the conclusion of the hearing.

(b) Additional Evidence After the Record is Closed

Once the record is closed, no additional evidence will be accepted into the record, except upon a showing that new and material evidence has become available which was not readily available prior to the closing of the record. A party wishing to submit additional documents or other evidence after the record is closed must file the documents or evidence within 20 days after the close of the hearing and must serve copies on all other parties. Any other party may file a response to or comment on the additional documents or evidence.
