Subject of Possible Rule Making: Fire sprinkler system contractors.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 18.270.900 and 18.160.030.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The WAC as currently written is confusing, hard to understand, and lacks defined violations of the rule.
The proposed changes will allow the WAC to be reorganized, cleaning up unnecessary definitions, identify rule violations and penalties, and most importantly putting it into the plain language format. The additions will keep this rule current with industry practices.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: Labor and industries, attorney general's office.
Process for Developing New Rule: Negotiated rule making; and agency review.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Chief Deputy State Fire Marshal Dan Johnson, Fire Protection Bureau, P.O. Box 42600, Olympia, WA 98504-2600,, (360) 596-3913.
