RULE 812 - EVIDENCE
(Adopted 8/2/76; Revised 5/13/98)
- Hearings shall be conducted by the Hearing Board in accordance with California Health and Safety Code Section
40820 et seq. and these regulations.
- The hearing need not be conducted according to technical rules relating to evidence and witnesses. Any relevant
evidence shall be admitted if it is the sort of evidence on which responsible persons are accustomed to rely in
the conduct of serious affairs, regardless of the existence of any common law or statutory rule which might make
improper the admission of such evidence over objection in civil actions. Hearsay evidence may be used for the purpose
of supplementing or explaining any direct evidence, but shall not be sufficient in itself to support a finding
unless it would be admissible over objection in civil actions. The rules of privilege shall be effective to the
same extent that they are now or hereafter may be recognized in civil actions, and irrelevant and unduly repetitious
evidence shall be excluded.
