Blood Establishments

Rules in Progress

The rules writing process is open to the public. These rules are created through a public process involving open public meetings and hearings. Each of these rules is in various stages of rule writing.

Current rules in progress

On January 23, 2018, the Washington State Department of Health (department) filed a preproposal statement of inquiry (CR-101) with the Office of the Code Reviser. The statement notifies the public of the department's intent to consider amendments to certain provisions of Chapter 246-339 WAC--Blood establishments. Those amendments relate to the department's registration requirements for blood establishments that except hospitals from providing proof of a Food and Drug Administration license. The department may amend other rules in the chapter or make grammatical corrections as needed.

The department will conduct a rules workshop on February 12, 2018, 9 a.m.
