Past Rulemaking Update:

 

The Oregon Mortuary and Cemetery Board previously proposed administrative rule-making to create a continuing education (CE) program that, if adopted, would have gone into effect January 1 2015.  Thanks to the participation of all of you, the Board has decided to gather further information, and revise the proposed program based on all your input.  The CE Program is NOT in effect.

 

In the mean time, we are making revisions and adding requested detail and many changes, and then will be sending back out to you for review, as well as scheduling additional public hearings, in order to develop an effective program proposal.
