§ 1005.62. Amendments to conform to the evidence.
(a) Amendment by consent. When the parties introduce issues at a hearing not raised in the pleadings without objection of any party, the issues shall be treated in all respects as if they had been raised in the pleadings.
(b) Amendment following objection. If evidence upon new issues is objected to on the ground that it is not within the issues raised by the pleadings, the Authority or the presiding officer may allow the pleadings to be amended and the evidence to be received, when it appears that the presentation of the merits of the proceedings will be served thereby without prejudicing the public interest, the rights of a party and that the omission of the amended information was not calculated to delay the proceedings.
(c) Continuance following objection. A continuance may be granted by the Authority or the presiding officer under § 1001.15 (relating to extensions of time and continuances) when necessary to allow the objecting party to address new issues and evidence.
(d) Notice of amendment. If an amendment adopted under this section has the effect of broadening the issues in the proceeding, notice of the amendment shall be given in the same manner as notice was given at the commencement of the proceeding and to the same persons who received the notice.
(e) Supersession. Subsections (a)(d) supersede 1 Pa. Code § 35.49 (relating to amendments to conform to the evidence).
