Purpose and scope.

(1) What do these rules do? The department's practices and procedures rules, set out in this chapter, govern the method, time and place for challenging department actions and the procedures for conducting an adjudicative proceeding of that challenge.
(2) Do these rules govern my issue? Generally, these rules apply if you are challenging a department determination regarding:
(a) Derelict vessels (chapter 79.100 RCW);
(b) Forest practices notices to comply (chapter 76.09 RCW);
(c) Oil and gas drilling (chapter 78.52 RCW);
(d) Surface mining (chapter 78.44 RCW);
(e) Other department determinations that are not proprietary and do not fall within the exclusive jurisdiction of separate quasi-judicial boards, such as the forest practices appeals board.
(3) How are these rules organized? This chapter contains provisions for all reviews (adjudicative proceedings) heard by the department or the office of administrative hearings on the department's behalf. WAC 332-08-101 through 332-08-610 contain specific procedures for adjudicative proceedings and are divided by subject matter. Subject-specific sections apply to the following topics:
(a) Derelict vessels—Part II;
(b) Forest practices notices to comply—Part III;
(c) Oil and gas drilling—Part IV;
(d) Surface mining—Part V; and
(e) Other department determinations that are not proprietary and fall within the direct review authority of the department—Part VI.
(4) When reviewing these rules, one should review the general provisions under Part I and the specific rules contained in Parts II through VI that relate to the applicable subject matter.

Proprietary decisions.

Is review under the Administrative Procedure Act available for proprietary decisions? No. This section, concerning administrative review, is not available for proprietary decisions. Under RCW 34.05.010(3), sales, leases, contracts, or other proprietary decisions in the management of public lands or real property interests are not agency actions and are not subject to adjudicative proceedings under the Administrative Procedure Act (APA). Accordingly, the department will not commence APA-based adjudicative proceedings for proprietary decisions, including, but not limited to, actions taken under the terms of geoduck harvesting agreements, aquatic lands leases, easements, rights of way, revocation to install residential dock and residential mooring buoys, purchases or leases of public lands or any valuable materials thereon, permits to use state-owned land and resources, timber sale contracts, mineral prospecting leases, mining contracts, or other proprietary agreements to which the department is a party. Nonjudicial review of these actions may be available or required under the terms of the specific agreement or related laws.

Minimum criteria for vessel inspection.

(1) What are the minimum criteria for a vessel inspection to determine a vessel is seaworthy? For the purpose of this rule, the term "seaworthy" means the vessel and its equipment are physically fit and in full working order; able to encounter and withstand the ordinary perils of the sea during its contemplated use; and suitable for its intended purpose. Current U.S. Coast Guard certificates of inspection are acceptable forms of vessel condition determination. Other vessel inspection disclosure reports must document the condition, valuation, and suitability of the vessel for service. The vessel inspection disclosure report may be prepared for either the owner, lien holder, buyer/transferee, vessel broker, or associated financial and insurance provider(s) for the vessel. Vessel inspections must be prepared by a professional marine surveyor who is a third party to the transaction. The vessel inspection must be completed within thirty days prior to the seller/transferor transferring ownership of the vessel. Before transferring ownership of the vessel, the seller/transferor must provide the department a hard copy of the vessel inspection disclosure report and department-issued Acknowledgement Form with original, notarized signatures of the seller/transferor and the buyer/transferee acknowledging receipt of the vessel inspection disclosure report.
(2) The vessel inspection disclosure report must include the following information, at a minimum if applicable to the vessel:
(a) Cover page describing:
(i) Report title identifying type of survey;
(ii) Date report issued;
(iii) Contact information for surveyor;
(iv) Current photograph of vessel, date and location; and
(v) Official vessel number.
(b) Vessel description:
(i) General description;
(ii) Vessel name;
(iii) Current legal owner;
(iv) Intended use of vessel;
(v) Design; and
(vi) Type of construction.
(c) Vessel particulars:
(i) Builder;
(ii) Displacement;
(iii) Length;
(iv) Breadth;
(v) Draught; and
(vi) Fuel system.
(d) Surveyor's notes and condition rating;
(e) Systems evaluation:
(i) Type of propulsion;
(ii) Auxiliary engines; and
(iii) Electrical systems.
(f) Conditions:
(i) Overall appearance; and
(ii) Hull and superstructure condition.
(g) Surveyor recommendations;
(h) Appraisal of market value;
(i) Replacement value;
(j) Physical suitability of the vessel and its equipment for its intended use; and
(k) Determine whether the cost of repairs required to return the vessel and its equipment to physical suitability for its intended use is likely to exceed the market value of the vessel.
