[Filed March 22, 2022, 8:22 a.m.]
Subject of Possible Rule Making: The department of labor and industries (L&I) is considering a possible fee increase for conveyances under WAC 296-96-00922, 296-96-01005, 296-96-01010, 296-96-01025, 296-96-01027, 296-96-01030, 296-96-01035, 296-96-01040, 296-96-01045, 296-96-01055, 296-96-01057, 296-96-01060, and 296-96-01065.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: Chapter 70.87 RCW.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: This rule making considers increasing the elevator fees by 17 percent to fund a new conveyance management system (CMS). L&I is in the process of replacing its current CMS database that provides permitting, inspection, and other information. The current system has been in use since 2006. It is aging, failing, and no longer meets the service needs of customers and staff. The new CMS is expected to go online in mid-2023.

The public can also participate after amendments are proposed by providing written comments and/or testimony during the public hearing and comment process.
