WSR 20-24-079
[Filed November 25, 2020, 9:35 a.m.]
This memo serves as notice that the department of health, board of naturopathy (board) is requesting to withdraw WSR 13-22-059. The CR-101, titled "Chapter 246-836 WAC, Naturopathic physicians, to consider rule making regarding the practice of nonsurgical cosmetic procedures" was filed November 4, 2013.
Since the filing of the CR-101 there have been significant delays in this rule-making project, many of which were outside the control of the board. The CR-101 on this topic was filed on November 4, 2013 (WSR 13-22-059), a CR-102 was filed on July 2, 2018 (WSR 18-14-087), and the rule adoption hearing was held on September 7, 2018. Due to significant public comment and public testimony, the CR-102 expired before the board was able to come to a decision on formal adoption.
After discussing the various obstacles to moving forward, the board has determined to start over with rule making on this topic. In doing so, the board is withdrawing this CR-101 and will file a new CR-101.
Individuals requiring information on this rule should contact Susan Gragg, board of naturopathy program manager, at 360-236-4941.
