Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 41.05.021, 41.05.160.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The agency is amending this WAC to remove the reference to consent forms and replace with "written acknowledgement."

During the course of this review, the agency may identify additional changes that are required in order to improve clarity or update policy.
