PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
This is a memo asking for withdrawal of the CR-101 proposing amending chapter 246-873 WAC, filed May 10, 2010, and published in WSR 10-11-023. The board of pharmacy (board) voted to withdraw this CR-101 at the August 16, 2012, meeting. The original intent of the preproposal was to update the hospital standards rule. The rule is outdated and has not been amended since 1992.
The board is currently doing a project to scan all rules to evaluate for regulatory barriers to patient safety and contemporary practice. They may open this chapter at a later date as part of this project. This will allow for consistent and collaborative rule making among those rules being updated.
Individuals requiring information on this rule should contact Kitty Slater-Einert, rules coordinator for the Washington state board of pharmacy at (360) 236-4861.
