Implementation plan.

The department will implement and complete an evaluation of this rule by doing the following:
• Organize a scientific team to oversee collection and analysis of data collected during 2004 and 2005. L&I will select representatives of the University of Washington, Washington State University, as well as other interested members of the academic and scientific communities, to participate on the team. The team will provide an initial analysis of testing data and any appropriate recommendations directly to L&I and to the cholinesterase monitoring advisory committee by November 1, 2004, and a further analysis and any appropriate recommendations by November 1, 2005. A final report and recommendations will be completed by September 30, 2006.
• Establish a cholinesterase stakeholder advisory committee to evaluate issues related to rule implementation and provide recommendations to the department regarding implementation of the rule and any possible modifications to it. L&I will invite representatives of growers, labor and other affected state agencies to participate on the advisory committee. The committee will have an opportunity to comment on the analysis completed by the scientific team and to make any appropriate recommendations before December 1, 2004, and again before December 1, 2005. In addition, the committee will review the scientific committee's final report and recommendations and provide advice to L&I prior to December 1, 2006.
• Review reports from the scientific team and stakeholder advisory committee, and other relevant information and make modifications to the rule as appropriate.
• Make efforts to defray the costs of medical testing during 2004.
• Prepare and distribute provider guidelines.
• Develop and make available a model employee training program.
• Publish a list of trained providers and certified laboratories on the internet.
• Coordinate recordkeeping requirements with the department of agriculture.
