Subject of Possible Rule Making: Ignition interlock device security and unlock codes.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 43.43.395, 46.37.005, 46.04.215.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Ignition interlock technology has advanced significantly in recent years to accommodate a secure and reliable method of remotely unlocking ignition interlock devices during a lockout condition. This rule would allow ignition interlock manufacturers to utilize this technology while, at the same time, creating a secure and accountable method of testing and oversight of any use by the Washington state patrol (WSP).
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: Department of licensing, attorney general. WSP anticipates providing draft language to impacted stakeholders for review and input as part of the process.
Process for Developing New Rule: WSP welcomes the public to take part in developing the rules. Anyone interested should contact the staff person identified below. At a later date, WSP will file a proposed rule making (CR-102) with the office of the code reviser. A copy of the proposal will be sent to anyone who requests a copy.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Kimberly Mathis, Agency Rules Coordinator, 106 11th Avenue S.W., Olympia, WA, phone 360-596-4017, email, web site; or Sergeant Brandon Villanti, 811 East Roanoke Street, Seattle, WA, email
