PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
On August 2, 2000, the Department of Health (DOH) filed preproposal statement of inquiry WSR 00-16-106 regarding rules for x-ray standards. At the time of filing, DOH was exploring the possibility of rule making to address patient exposure limits, quality assurance standards for x-ray film processors, and clarifying existing rules in chapters 246-224, 246-225, 246-227, 246-228, and 246-229 WAC.
Since this rule making has been delayed, DOH asks that you withdraw this statement of inquiry. DOH expects to consider rules for individual x-ray standards by facility type in the near future. A new statement of inquiry will be filed to alert interested parties at that time.
For more information regarding this rule making, contact Terry Frazee, Office of Radiation Protection, (360) 236-3213.
