(1) The Public Records Act provides that a number of types of documents are exempt from public inspection and copying. In addition, documents are exempt from disclosure if any "other statute" exempts or prohibits disclosure. Requestors should be aware of the following exemptions found specifically in the insurance code (Title 48
RCW), that restrict the availability of some documents held by the OIC for inspection and copying:
(b) Confidentiality of documents, materials, or other information, RCW 48.02.065
(f) Documents, materials, or other information in the possession or control of the commissioner that are obtained by or disclosed to the commissioner or any other person in the course of an examination or investigation made pursuant to RCW 48.31B.035
(h) Service contract provider's annual reports, RCW 48.110.040
(2) The OIC is prohibited by statute from disclosing lists of individuals for commercial purposes.
This list is for informational purposes only and a failure to list an exemption shall not affect the efficacy of any exemption.
