National certification conversion

Any International Code Council (ICC) or other nationally recognized certification must be converted to an equivalent Oregon certification to perform work under that certification in Oregon. After your certification has been converted, you are only required to maintain your Oregon certification. A list of nationally recognized certifications and the equivalent Oregon code certification can be found below.

Follow these steps to convert your national certification.

Step 1: Review the qualifications

To convert a national certification, you must have an Oregon Inspector Certification (OIC).

Step 2: Apply

Fill out the National Certification Conversion Application , and attach documentation showing the current expiration date for each certification conversion requested.

Mail or fax all completed documents along with the appropriate fee(s) in a single packet to the Oregon Building Codes Division.

Identify the Oregon code certification


Other national certifications

The division will issue an Oregon certification for other nationally recognized certifications where the division finds the certification is equivalent to an Oregon certification. You must submit evidence of the national certification(s) to the division. Photocopies of certifications are acceptable – you do not need to submit originals.
