PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH
[Filed August 27, 2020, 8:41 p.m.]
This memo serves as notice that the department of health, dental quality assurance commission (commission) is withdrawing the CR-101 for WAC 246-817-120 Examination content. The CR-101 was filed on May 19, 2020, and published as WSR 20-11-056.
The commission filed a CR-101 to consider amending the rule to add the Joint Commission on National Dental Examination's Dental Licensure Objective Structured Clinical Examination, a nonpatient based examination, to allowable practical/clinical examinations in WAC 246-817-120. On July 17, 2020, the commission determined additional amendments not included in the scope of the original CR-101 filed as WSR 20-11-056 should be considered for permanent rule making to include allowing an applicant to pass components of the practical examination using one or more testing agencies, rather than only one agency. Therefore, the commission will file a new CR-101 with an expanded scope of rule-making.
Individuals requiring information on this rule should contact Jennifer Santiago, dental quality assurance commission program manager, at 360-236-4893.
