Upon the request of an interested party, or upon its own motion and within its discretion, the review commission or a hearing officer may, at any time, issue subpoenas to compel the attendance and testimony of witnesses and production of books, accounts, papers, records and documents at any hearing. If an interested party desires the issuance of subpoenas in order to compel the attendance of witnesses or the production of evidence at a scheduled hearing, the party's request should be filed with the review commission at least five calendar days in advance of the date of the hearing in order to allow sufficient time for preparation and service of the subpoenas. In the event that the number of subpoenas requested by any party appears to be unreasonable, the review commission may require a showing of necessity therefor, and, in the absence of such showing, only three subpoenas will be issued.
