Subject of Possible Rule Making: Chapter 308-93 WAC, Vessel registration and certificates of title, to include but not limited to WAC 308-93-030 Vessels subject to excise tax, registration and titling and 308-93-070 Application for certificate of ownership/registration.

Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 88.02.070 and 88.02.100.

Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Rule making may be required to specify the vessel registration certificate must be carried on board the vessel for which it is issued at all times. We explain what must be on the registration but not where to carry this information. This will allow law enforcement another tool for boating safety.

Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: None.

Process for Developing New Rule: Committee with stakeholder review.

Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Dale R.
