Effective Date of Rule: February 1, 2011.
Purpose: Currently, notification is required on the first day that the explosive materials are stored. Notification to the local fire safety authority is not required until the explosives are moved. This rule making makes notification an annual event. Prior to this change, explosives could be left in one location for years and only one notification to local fire safety authorities was required. Language was added to chapter 296-52 WAC that requires those who store explosives to notify their local fire authority every year.
WAC 296-52-69040 Notification of fire safety authority.
