Purpose

The purpose of this rulemaking is to implement House Bill 1514 (HB 1514), Chapter 78, Laws of 2023; and Senate Bill 5089 (SB 5089), Chapter 36, Laws of 2023. Labor & Industries is proposing amendments to the factory assembled structures (FAS) rules. The proposed amendments affect L&I’s FAS Advisory Board, and distributing inspection insignia to manufacturers of recreational vehicles. HB 1514 allows recreational vehicles (RV’s) and recreational park trailer manufacturers with an agency approved Quality Control Program to request and purchase insignia while their plans are under review by the FAS Program. SB 5089 was an L&I request bill that amends membership for the FAS Advisory Board. Amendments include: Increasing the number of board members from nine to at least 11; Adding a representative for allied trades such as electricians, plumbers and contractors; Adding diversity considerations for Board appointments; and Requiring members to apply for reappointment if serving consecutive terms. The new statutory amendments also make technical and clean-up changes under Chapters 43.22 and 43.22A RCW.
