Transition from the experimental system program to application for product registration.
(1) The department's list of approved systems and products shall:
(a) Become static on September 15, 2005. Subsequent changes, additions or deletions to the list of approved systems and products will only be made when approved by the department based on completed applications received prior to September 15, 2005.
(b) Remain in effect until March 15, 2007.
(2) Persons representing experimental systems not on the department's list of approved systems and products on September 15, 2005, and not otherwise eligible for inclusion on the list by submittal of a completed application prior to September 15, 2005, may apply to a local health officer for a product development permit under WAC 246-272A-0170.
(3) Those persons representing experimental systems on the department's list of approved systems and products on September 15, 2005, may continue with the experimental testing according to the experimental testing protocol agreed to by the department until completed. Upon completion of the testing, the person may apply to the department for product registration under WAC 246-272A-0120 or 246-272A-0145. In considering the results of the experimental testing protocol, the department may seek a recommendation from the TAC. The department may determine:
(a) The product meets the requirements for registration and place it on the list of registered proprietary products; or
(b) The product does not meet the requirements for registration. Any further treatment product development and testing may continue under WAC 246-272A-0170, not under the department's previous experimental system program. The requirements of WAC 246-272A-0110, 246-272A-0130, or 246-272A-0140 apply to any further application for product registration.
