Enforcement program

The Enforcement Program promotes building safety by ensuring businesses and individuals that work in specific construction trades comply with Oregon building code statutes, rules, and specialty codes. This includes ensuring businesses and individuals have the appropriate licenses.

Any citizen can file a complaint, or report of alleged violation, regarding a business or individual. The program addresses complaints through investigation and, if warranted, may recommend actions, civil penalties, or both.

Penalty matrix

The penalty matrix identifies penalties that may be assessed to businesses and individuals found to be in violation of building code statutes, rules, and specialty codes.
