Division 050 Proposed Rule Amendments


 Final Adopted Rules - Effective January 4, 2017

Over the past year, the Oregon Board of Accountancy (Board) has worked with its stakeholders through the Laws and Rules Committee (LRC) to develop a broad range of rule revisions for the Board. The final revisions touch every aspect (and Division) of the Board’s rules, including – but are not limited to – a special focus in Division 010 on the boundaries of what is (and is not) permissible work activity if licensed with an inactive or retired status license.  In addition, the changes in Division 030 rules include  adding individual licensees to the 45-day reporting requirement for lawsuits that currently only applies to registered firms, while clarifying the scope for what types of lawsuits firms and individuals must report.  In Division 050, the proposed rules no longer permit that firms can opt-out  of reporting peer review results to the Facilitated State Board Access web site, as part of a national movement toward more uniform rules on peer review oversight. 

A full version of each division can be found under the Administrative Rules tab.
