Purpose of this chapter and applicability of the board's rules of practice and the civil rules of procedure and the rules of evidence.
(1) The purpose of chapter 371-08 WAC is to provide rules of practice before the pollution control hearings board (hereinafter "board").

(2) Except where in conflict with the board's rules, Washington statutes regarding pretrial procedures, civil rules and rules of evidence shall be followed in proceedings before the board unless the presiding officer determines that the evidence, although in conflict with the rules of evidence, is admissible pursuant to WAC 371-08-500.

(3) This chapter shall govern practice before the board. The rules in this chapter are consistent with the model rules of procedure issued by the office of administrative hearings, chapter 10-08 WAC, except where specifically noted.

Filing a timely appeal with the board.
(1) An appeal before the board shall be begun by filing a notice of appeal with the board at the environmental hearings office and by serving a copy of the appeal notice on the agency whose decision is being appealed. For the board to acquire jurisdiction both such filing and such service must be timely accomplished.

(2) The notice of appeal shall be filed with the board within thirty days of the date of receipt of the order or decision. The board's rule governing the computation of time (WAC 371-08-310) shall determine how the thirty-day appeal period is calculated. The "date of receipt" of an order or decision means:

(a) Five business days after the date of mailing; or

(b) The date of actual receipt, when the actual receipt date can be proven by a preponderance of the evidence. The recipient's sworn affidavit or declaration indicating the date of receipt, which is unchallenged by the agency, shall constitute sufficient evidence of actual receipt. The date of actual receipt, however, may not exceed forty-five days from the date of mailing.

(3) An appeal may be filed with the board by personal delivery, commercial delivery, facsimile, or first-class, registered or certified mail. An appeal is filed with the board on the date the board actually receives the notice of the appeal, not the date that the notice is mailed. Upon receiving the notice of appeal, the board will acknowledge receipt. The date stamped on the appeal notice shall be prima facie evidence of the filing date. The board may thereafter require that additional copies be filed.
