Subject of Possible Rule Making: Amendment of chapter 51-13 WAC, Washington State Ventilation and Indoor Air Quality Code.

Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 19.27.074, 19.27.190, and 19.27.020.

Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The state building code council regularly reviews the Washington state building code, as outlined in chapter 51-04 WAC and RCW 19.27.074, to review revisions made to the codes by the national model code committees, and to review and consider proposals for state-wide code amendments. The estimated effective date of the new code is July 1, 2010.

Process for Developing New Rule: Technical advisory group (TAG) review.

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