Rulemaking Notice: Amending WAC 365-230

Source: Washington State Department of Commerce, July 12, 2021

Updating clearance standards for lead in dust on floors and windows for lead-based paint programs 

This rulemaking will align Commerce with the Environmental Protection Agency’s updated clearance standards for lead in dust on floors and windows in homes or children’s facilities, and existing definitions for “landlord” and “property manager.” The proposed rules also amend certain training and certification requirements to reflect programmatic updates and to clarify language for firms and employees.


The department filed a CR-102 notice of proposed rulemaking on July 7, 2021, with intended date of adoption on Oct. 1, 2021. A public hearing will be held remotely at 11:00 a.m. on Sept. 9, 2021 using this Zoom link.
