Subject of Possible Rule Making: Vehicle wreckers, hulk haulers and scrap processors, WAC 308-63-040, 308-65-040, 308-65-090, 308-65-120(5).
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 46.79.030, 46.80.030.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Currently there exists conflicting information in the RCW and WAC on who to contact for inspections for vehicle wreckers, hulk haulers, and scrap processors. The change will provide uniform contact information for inspections.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: Other state agency: Washington state patrol. Washington state patrol requested this rule change as they are one of the entities responsible for certain inspections. Local chief of police also perform inspections (if business is located in a city with population of more than five thousand).
Process for Developing New Rule: Negotiated rule making, the department of licensing (DOL) has been working with Washington state patrol to identify and develop this rule change.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Jennifer Freudenthal, Dealer and Manufacturer Services, DOL, Business and Professions Division, P.O.
