(a) A party may not be required to comply with a final order unless the party has been served with or has actual knowledge of the final order;
(b) A nonparty may not be required to comply with a final order unless the agency has made the final order available for public inspection and copying or the nonparty has actual knowledge of the final order;
(c) For purposes of determining time limits for further administrative procedure or for judicial review, the determinative date is the date of service of the order.
(2) Unless a later date is stated in the initial order or a stay is granted, the time when an initial order becomes a final order in accordance with RCW 34.05.461 is determined as follows:
(a) When the initial order is entered, if administrative review is unavailable; or
(b) When the agency head with such authority enters an order stating, after a petition for administrative review has been filed, that review will not be exercised.
