Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 246-926-140, 246-926-310, and 246-926-410, radiologic technology - military equivalency of training or experience in meeting credentialing standards.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 18.84.040 and 18.84.095.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: In 2011, the legislature allowed military training or experience to satisfy credentialing requirements for health care professions unless a health profession regulatory entity determines that it is not substantially equivalent to Washington licensure standards (SSB 5307, chapter 32, Laws of 2011). For the radiologic technology professions, the department is considering amending rules to address final equivalency determinations for radiologic technologists, radiologist assistants, and cardiovascular invasive specialists.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: None.
Process for Developing New Rule: Collaborative rule making.
