The best approach I've seen is specifying stainless steel plate material ASTM A 240 AISI types 304 or 316 - depending on your application, with the washer dimensions conforming to ANSI B18.22.1 Type A Plain. This was taken from the Hilti Product Technical Manual. Simpson and Powers have similar stuff, but not as detailed.
A-240 plate is supplied annealed--probably too soft for a washer unless you're using it for something besides a washer. F-436 may have more on washers for use with stainless fasteners.
