The Oregon Board of Cosmetology is considering new rules that would increase the fines for licensees who are repeatedly non-compliant with laws and rules. Another potential change would provide the board with the ability to suspend and revoke authorizations for repeated violations.
The proposed rules also increase fines for certain safety and infection-control penalties, including failure to disinfect foot spas and discard disposable articles.
The Health Licensing Office is requesting public comment on whether other options should be considered for achieving the rules' substantive goals while reducing negative economic effects on businesses.
Proposed rules on civil penalty increases and authorization suspensions and revocations
The public comment period runs Oct. 1 through 5 p.m. Nov. 30, 2015. A public hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m. Oct. 28 in the Rhoades Conference Room at the Health Licensing Office, 700 Summer St. NE (Veterans Building), Salem, OR.
