According to the WCAB:


"The Appeals Board panel determined that when a paper file, an electronic file in EAMS, or a combined paper and electronic file is sent to the Appeals Board after the filing of a petition for reconsideration, removal, or disqualification, (1) there must be a complete and properly organized record which includes all documents admitted in evidence, (2) it is the responsibility of the WCJ to ensure that all documents in the record are scanned into EAMS, or at least placed in the paper file in proper order, no later than transmission of the file(s) to the Appeals Board, and (3) without a proper record the matter may be returned to the WCJ to properly complete the record."
