|(a) Exhibits of documentary character shall be of a size which will not unduly encumber the files and records of TRS and whenever practicable, shall conform to the requirements set forth in §43.12 of this chapter (relating to Forms of Petitions and Other Pleadings). (b) The original of each exhibit offered shall be tendered to the court reporter or administrative law judge for identification; one copy shall be furnished to the administrative law judge and one copy to each other party of record or his attorney of record. (c) In the event an exhibit has been identified, objected to, and excluded, the administrative law judge shall determine whether the party offering the exhibit withdraws the offer, and if so, permit the return of the exhibit to that party. If the excluded exhibit is not withdrawn, it shall be given an exhibit number for identification, shall be endorsed by the administrative law judge with the ruling, and shall be included in the record for the purpose only of preserving the exception. (d) Unless specifically permitted by the administrative law judge, no exhibit will be permitted to be filed in any proceeding after the conclusion of the hearing. In the event the administrative law judge allows an exhibit to be filed after the conclusion of a hearing, copies of the late-filed exhibit shall be served on all parties of record.
