The board may exclude evidence that is irrelevant, immaterial, or unduly repetitious.
(2) The board's experience, technical knowledge, competency, and specialized knowledge may be used in evaluation of evidence.
(3) Documentary evidence may be submitted in the form of copies or excerpts.
(4) If not inconsistent with subsection (1) of this section, the board may refer to, but shall not be bound by, the Washington rules of evidence.
