Videoconference Hearings

The Board or the assigned hearing officer may decide to hold a hearing by videoconference. In deciding whether to do so, the Board or the hearing officer will consider factors like cost-effectiveness, efficiency, facility accommodations, witness availability, public interest, the parties’ preferences, and the proceeding’s complexity and contentiousness. Any party to an adjudicatory case or participant in a rulemaking may request that a hearing be held by videoconference. For more information about videoconference hearings, please refer below to Part 101 of the Board’s procedural rules.
