Code progress and updates
EO 20-04 requires the division, through its advisory boards, to evaluate and report on Oregon's current progress toward achieving the goals for new residential and commercial buildings, and options for achieving that goal over the next three code cycles and then submit a report on the current progress every three years thereafter.
