Description The emergency rule changes adopted on December 13, 2013 include:
• Updating the definition of plan holder to include all persons listed in RCW 88.46.060.
• Updating the definition of “umbrella plan” and ensure the term is used only when referring to non-profit corporations.
• Ensuring that owner/operators, if operating under a plan that covers multiple parties, are not required to comply with provisions of the rule that apply specifically to “plan holders.”
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
