Subject of Possible Rule Making: Chapter 212-80 WAC, Fire protection sprinkler system contractors.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: Chapters 18.160 and 18.270 RCW.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Chapter 212-80 WAC currently sets a rule for chapters 18.160 RCW, Fire system sprinkler contractors and 18.270 RCW, Fire protection sprinkler fitting. Due to differing definitions in the RCW, and the fact the RCW apply to separate licenses and certifications within the sprinkler industry, a single WAC has created confusion when interpreting the rule and determining violations with appropriate enforcement.
Process for Developing New Rule: Washington state patrol (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 with a notice of proposed rule making. 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
