Unless otherwise ordered by a commissioner, a deputy commissioner, or a presiding workers' compensation judge, testimony taken at hearings in compensation proceedings will not be transcribed except upon the request of a party accompanied by the fee prescribed in the Rules of the Administrative Director.

Requests for transcription of testimony shall be in writing, served on all other parties, directed to the transcript clerk and accompanied by a deposit fee based on the transcript clerk's estimate of the number of pages to be transcribed. If the actual fee exceeds the deposit, the purchaser shall pay the balance of the fee before the transcript is released. Any excess deposit will be returned to the purchaser.

No person shall make a photographic copy of a transcript from the Board file except upon payment prescribed by law for a copy of the transcript.
