Effective Date of Rule: July 1, 2009.
Purpose: During the rules simplification project, the manufacturer requirements below were removed because, at that time, it was felt they did not need to be spelled out in our rules. However, after further review, staff have determined these should be added back into our rules. (1) Staff may conduct an on-site review of a manufacturer's processes; and (2) manufacturers must comply with quality control restrictions for gambling equipment used in Washington state.
