Subject of Possible Rule Making: Agency will be reviewing WACs related to recreational conveyances inspection program. WACs being reviewed are WAC 352-44-020 Recreational conveyances—Certification and 352-44-080 Recreational conveyances—Simulated load test.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: Chapter 79A.05 RCW.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: WACs being reviewed are:
WAC 352-44-020 Recreational conveyances—Certification—Changing the dates for the certificate, the certification is now set for an annual term beginning January 1. The certification is required prior for each season, winter (November 1 to May 31) or summer (June 1 - October 31).
WAC 352-44-080 Recreational conveyances—Simulated load test, state parks is proposing to repeal WAC 352-44-080. State parks has adopted ANSI B77.1, current edition as the governing standard; it covers load testing, having a WAC covering the same issue gives the opening for conflicts.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: None.
Process for Developing New Rule: Agency study.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Nata Jo Hurst, Administrative Assistant 3, Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission, 1111 Israel Road S.W., P.O.
