On September 5, 2017, the Department of Health will hold a public hearing on a proposal to create WAC 246-490-200, Electronic death registration. The proposed rule requires electronic reporting of deaths in Washington State, excluding fetal deaths, and no longer allows submitting death reports using paper forms. Electronic reporting will simplify and accelerate reporting of deaths, and support rapid surveillance and response to communicable disease and other health threats.

You may review the proposed rule and provide comments electronically at the Department of Health web site: https://fortress.wa.gov/doh/policyreview/

You may also provide comments at the public hearing.
Date:Tuesday, September 5, 2017
Time:10:00 am
Where: Department of Health, Town Center 1, Room 133
101 Israel Rd. SE Tumwater, WA 98501

You may send your written comments until 5:00 pm on September 5, 2017 to Daniel.ONeill@doh.wa.gov, or via postal service at:
Daniel O’Neill
Department of Health
Center for Health Statistics
PO Box 47814 Olympia, WA 98504-7814

 If you need assistance or have questions about the rule making, please contact Daniel O’Neill at (360) 236-4311 or Daniel.ONeill@doh.wa.gov.
