PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
OFFICE OF THE
[Filed September 4, 2018, 4:28 p.m.]
I am withdrawing the CR-101 for R2017-04: Adjuster Licensing Requirements. The code reviser's office published this rule in WSR 17-13-079.
Our agency's reason for proposing the rule was to interpret the breadth of activities to be licensed under the definition of adjuster and to clarify education alternatives to adjuster training. As we progressed through the process for this proposed rule, we became aware that the broad language in RCW 48.17.010
(1) that defines "adjuster" will not allow us to narrowly identify the role of adjusting in insurance claims. The statutory definition will need to be amended. As a result, our agency has decided to withdraw the CR-101 and engage with stakeholders to encourage proposing amending legislation.
We will contact stakeholders and make them aware of this withdrawal.
