  §  1.225   Participation by non-parties; consideration of communications.

   (a) Any person who wishes to appear and give evidence on any matter and
   who so advises the Secretary, will be notified by the Secretary if that
   matter is designated for hearing. In the case of requests bearing more
   than one signature, notice of hearing will be given to the person first
   signing unless the request indicates that such notice should be sent to
   someone other than such person.

   (b) No persons shall be precluded from giving any relevant, material,
   and competent testimony because they lack a sufficient interest to
   justify their intervention as parties in the matter.

   (c) No communication will be considered in determining the merits of
   any matter unless it has been received into evidence. The admissibility
   of any communication shall be governed by the applicable rules of
   evidence in § 1.351, and no communication shall be admissible on the
   basis of a stipulation unless Commission counsel as well as counsel for
   all of the parties shall join in such stipulation.
