Policy Statements are agency-level documents declaring plans or intentions of an agency. Policies are different from procedures, standard operating procedures, or guidance because they apply to the entire organization and are primarily intended to set direction. In contrast, procedures or guidelines typically include specific instructions used to accomplish defined tasks that may be described in a policy. 

Notice of WSLCB Policy Statement Number PS 22-03 was filed with the Washington State Code Reviser on July 20, 2022  as WSR 22-16-004.
