The practice of environmental health directly affects the public health, the quality of the environment and welfare of the citizens of the State of Washington. In order to safeguard health and property, and to protect the public welfare, any person practicing or offering to practice, as a sanitarian, must meet minimum competency requirements.

The Washington State Board of Registered Sanitarians is established to provide a mechanism whereby the competency of environmental health professionals may be tested and certified as meeting established standards for breadth and depth of knowledge and skill proficiency. The registration certificate is a certificate of qualification, and is intended to meet the needs to the state, municipalities, federal government, other employees and of the citizens of the state for qualified practitioners.

The Board shall work to upgrade the profession of environmental health through registration of professional practitioners engaged in the practice of environmental health.
