Normative Annex ZWashington state reporting requirements.

Z1 Building owner notifications by the AHJ.
Z1.1 Notification to building owners of covered commercial buildings by the AHJ. Based on records obtained from each county assessor and other available information sources, the AHJ must create a database of covered commercial buildings and building owners required to comply with the standard established in accordance with this section. The database may include buildings and building complexes presumed to meet the definition of covered commercial building and multifamily buildings greater than 50,000 square feet in floor area.
Z1.1.1 The database will contain information about buildings that may be subject to compliance, their owners, and information about multifamily residential buildings eligible for incentives. The database will also contain information to assist tracking and reporting on building owner compliance, and incentive application and distribution. Commerce will create a method for tracking building owner notification responses. Each building or building complex will be assigned a unique building identifier.
Z1.2 By July 1, 2021, the AHJ must provide the owners of covered commercial buildings with notification of compliance requirements. Notifications will be mailed to the mailing addresses county assessors have on file.
Z1.3 Failure by the AHJ to provide the notification in Z1.2 does not release the building owner of the legal obligation to comply with this law.
Z1.4 By July 1, 2021, the AHJ must provide notifications to the building owners of multifamily residential building where the floor area exceeds 50,000 gross square feet, excluding the parking garage area.
Z2 Building owner response to notifications.
Z2.1 Correction of errors.Building owners are responsible for reviewing the property and building information provided by the AHJ through notification including, but not limited to, building or building complex ownership details, gross floor area, and other information as identified by the building owner.
Z2.1.1 Correction of errors documentation form. Building owners who are notified in error may submit a correction form to the AHJ. The correction form will be used to document gross floor area (conditioned and unconditioned) and/or building type. Building owners that submit the correction form must also submit the documentation required to demonstrate an exception as required in Section Z4.1 prior to the compliance date if applicable.

Z5.3.3 If the building owner does not timely request a hearing or submit an application for exemption, the building owner waives its right to a hearing and the director or their designee may issue a final order assessing the penalties described in the NOVI. If the building owner has submitted a mitigation plan, the final order will only assess penalties from the scheduled compliance date until the date of an approval of compliance or conditional compliance.
Z5.3.4 Building owners who submit an application for exemption that is denied may request a hearing by submitting a request for a hearing within 30 days of issuance of the decision denying its application for exemption. If the building owner does not request a hearing within 30 days, the building owner waives its right to a hearing and the director or their designee may issue a final order assessing the penalties described in the NOVI.
Z5.4 Assessment of administrative penalties.
Z5.4.1 Failure to submit documentation demonstrating compliance with the standard by the date specified in a NOVC will result in the issuance of a NOVI and the assessment of administrative penalties at an amount not to exceed $5,000 plus an amount based on the duration of any continuing violation. The additional amount for a continuing violation may not exceed a daily amount equal to one dollar per square foot of gross floor area per year.
Z5.4.1.1 Penalties for building owners that submit a noncompliance mitigation plan. For building owners subject to a NOVI who respond within 30 days by submitting a noncompliance mitigation plan (Z5.7), fines shall be assessed on an annual basis or when the building owner achieves compliance or conditional compliance.
a. For applicants that submit a noncompliance mitigation plan and who submit documentation demonstrating completion, daily penalties will be assessed from the scheduled compliance date to the date of approval of compliance or conditional compliance. The penalty will be assessed at an amount not to exceed 30 percent of $5,000 plus a daily amount equal to 20 cents per square foot of gross floor area per year.
b. For applicants that submit a noncompliance mitigation plan but have not submitted documentation demonstrating completion, if the building does not comply with the standard by the next compliance date, the building owner will be assessed the maximum penalty of $5,000 plus a daily amount equal to one dollar per square foot of gross floor area per year not to exceed a value greater than 18 months of accrued penalty.
The AHJ may by rule increase the penalty rates to adjust for the effects of inflation.
Z5.4.1.2 Penalties for building owners that choose to pay the fine rather than pursuing compliance. Building owners may choose to respond to the NOVI by paying the maximum penalty. The building owner will be assessed the maximum penalty of $5,000 plus a daily amount equal to one dollar per square foot of gross floor area per year not to exceed a value greater than 18 months of accrued penalty. Penalties are assessed for each compliance period.
The AHJ may by rule increase the penalty rates to adjust for the effects of inflation.
Z5.4.2 When assessed penalties are not paid within 180 days of the date of a final order assessing penalties, the AHJ may assess further penalties. Total penalties assessed will not exceed $5,000 plus a daily amount equal to one dollar per square foot of gross floor area per year.
Z5.4.3 Interest will accrue on civil penalties pursuant to RCW 43.17.240 if and when the debt becomes past due.
Z5.5 Due date and collection of penalties.
Z5.5.1 Penalties shall become due and payable on the later of:
