Forest Practices Board 

Rule Making OVERVIEW

The Forest Practices Board follows the state laws that govern its rule making activity.

The Administrative Procedure Act (chapter 34.05 RCW) requires that agencies conduct a process that ensures public involvement opportunities and considers the economic impact of its rules.

The Regulatory Fairness Act (chapter 19.85 RCW) requires agencies to consider disproportionate impacts of rules on small businesses.

The State Environmental Policy Act (chapter 197-11 WAC) requires agencies to consider environmental impacts of rules.

In addition, RCW 76.09.040(2) of the Forest Practices Act requires that the Forest Practices Board inform counties and other governmental entities early in the rule development phase of the Board's intent to add or amend a forest practices rule.
