WAC 137-08-130

Exemption procedure.

(1) The public records staff will review file materials prior to disclosure.
(2) If the file does not contain materials exempt from disclosure, the staff person will ensure full production.
(3) When a person's identity is relevant to an exemption, that person may be required to provide personal identification.
(4) If the file does contain materials exempt from disclosure, under chapter 42.56 RCW or other statutes, the staff person responding will deny production of those exempt portions of the file, and will, at the time of denial, in writing, clearly specify the reasons for the denial of production, including a statement of the specific exemptions or reasons authorizing the withholding of the record and a brief explanation of how the exemption or reason applies. The remaining, nonexempt materials will be fully disclosed.
