(3) The parties to the hearing.

(4) The issues of fact on which a hearing has been justified.

(7) The time within which notices of participation should be filed under §1502.16.

(8) The date, time, and place of the prehearing conference, or a statement that the date, time, and place will be announced in a later notice. The prehearing conference may not commence until after the time expires for filing the notice of participation required by §1502.16(a).
