Title: Office of Hearings and Appeals (OHA) Rule 

The Office of Hearings and Appeals (OHA) is undertaking a Notice and Comment Rulemaking to modernize and clarify its regulations governing hearings and appeals before the Interior Board of Land Appeals (IBLA), the Interior Board of Indian Appeals (IBIA), the Departmental Cases Hearings Division (DCHD), and the OHA Director. OHA is initiating this regulatory action to update outdated provisions, make process improvements, and provide a more modernized and logical hearings and appeals process. This would be a comprehensive proposal to provide a more efficient process for OHA and the parties who appear before it, which include external stakeholders and Departmental bureaus.
