PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
BOARD OF ACCOUNTANCY
[Filed August 22, 2018, 2:47 p.m.]
Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 4-30-062 How do I apply to take the CPA examination?
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 18.04.055
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The board of accountancy proposes amending WAC 4-30-062 to: (1) Rename the rule; and (2) ACB works with its partner organizations including the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants to administer the certified public accountants (CPA) examination. The intent of this rule change is to accommodate the development of a continuously available examination process. Continuous testing will provide more flexibility and convenience for those individuals who seek licensure as CPAs in the state of Washington.
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.
