WITHDRAWAL OF
PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY

DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH


[ Filed June 29, 2012, 3:26 p.m. ]

The department of health would like to withdraw the following preproposal statement of inquiry (CR-101):


WAC NUMBER WSR NUMBER WSR DATE SUBJECT
WAC 246-922-010 and adding new sections to chapter 246-922 WAC 07-16-140 8/1/2007 Adding new sections to establish standards for prescribing orthotic devices by podiatric physicians and clarifying definitions for orthotic devices.

This memo serves as notice that the department is withdrawing the CR-101 for WAC 246-922-010 and chapter 246-922 WAC which was filed August 1, 2007, and published in WSR 07-16-140. The original intent of the preproposal was to establish standards for prescribing orthotic devices by podiatric physicians and clarify definitions for orthotic devices.

The podiatric medical board made the decision at their April 12, 2012, business meeting to withdraw the CR-101 because of concerns that rules may not be the best solution and may not be enforceable.

Individuals requiring further information should contact Erin Obenland, program manager for the podiatric medical board at (360) 236-4945.
