(a) Claims for compensation for disability and death are processed by claims examiners of the Bureau of Employees' Compensation, U.S. Department of Labor, whose duty it is to apply the law to the facts as reported, received, or obtained upon investigation. The Federal Employees' Compensation Act, as amended, requires determination of a claim, with findings of fact and a decision for or against the payment of compensation, upon consideration of the claim presented by the claimant, the report by his immediate superior, and the completion of such investigation as the Bureau may deem necessary. There is no required procedure for the production of evidence, and evidence in written form is accepted. The final authority in the Bureau in the determination of a claim is vested in the Director or Acting Director of the Bureau. The decision shall contain findings of fact and a statement of reasons. A copy of the decision, together with information as to the right to a hearing, to a review, and to an appeal to the Employees' Compensation Appeals Board, shall be mailed to the claimant at his last known address.

(b) For the purpose of this Chapter I, the "Federal Employees' Compensation Act” includes all laws providing or extending the protection of the Federal Employees' Compensation Act to employees described in $ 1.1(c) of this chapter. See also 5 U.S.C. Chapter 81 which codifies the Federal Employees' Compensation Act and its extensions. (35 FR. 1284, Jan. 31, 1970)
