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.

You are always welcome to take part in helping the Athletic Trainer committee write rules. Rules are also known as regulations, Washington Administrative Code, or WAC.

The rule-making process includes public notices and workshops, and usually a public hearing before a rule becomes final.
