This memo serves as notice that the pharmacy quality assurance commission (commission) is withdrawing the policy statement titled: New WAC Supersedes Old WAC: Clarification of Rules Enforcement, which was filed on August 6, 2020, and published under WSR 20-17-017.
The commission is withdrawing this policy statement because the continuing education rules contained within WAC 246-945-178 and 246-945-220 went into effect on December 1, 2021. Policy statement P002 states that the commission will not require licensees to comply with its "old rules" while they are being repealed due to a rules consolidation project resulting in the formation of chapter 246-945 WAC. Continuing education requirements were exempt from this statement as they had a delayed effective date under the new chapter. With the continuing education rules and all elements of chapter 246-945 WAC now in effect, the policy statement is no longer necessary.
Individuals requiring information should contact Joshua Munroe, rules and legislative consultant, email or phone 360-236-2987.
