Purpose: The purpose of this rule-making order is to repeal chapter 16-404 WAC, Standards for summer apples marketed within Washington, because it is outdated and no longer followed by industry. It has been supplanted by chapter 16-403 WAC and is, therefore, redundant. The repeal of chapter 16-404 WAC is a result of the department's ongoing rule review effort under Executive Order 97-02.
