WSR 22-16-110
[Filed August 3, 2022, 7:57 a.m.]
Subject of Possible Rule Making: Fireworks; WAC 212-17-021 Adoption of code, 212-17-223 Pyrotechnic operator license types, and 212-17-225 Application for license.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 70.77.250.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The list of specialized pyrotechnic operator license types in WAC 212-17-223 and 212-17-225 needs to be removed as they are not licensed within the state fire marshal's office (SFMO). SFMO currently license and test for pyrotechnic operator license only. Additionally, there is a need to update the National Fire Protection Standards in WAC 212-17-021.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: Not applicable. Washington state patrol (WSP) anticipates providing draft language to impacted stakeholders for review and input as part of the process.
Process for Developing New Rule: Agency review; WSP welcomes the public to take part in developing the rules. Anyone interested should contact the staff members 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 98507, phone 360-596-4017, email, website; or Esther Hernandez, Chief Duty State Fire Marshal, 106 11th Avenue S.W., Olympia, WA 98507, phone 360-596-3913, email, website
