Rules and Policies

The Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) operates according to Oregon Law, Oregon Administrative Rules (OARs) and Departmental Policies. Administrative Rules are created by most agencies and some boards and commissions to implement and interpret their statutory authority (ORS 183.310(9)). Agencies may adopt, amend, repeal or renumber rules, permanently or temporarily (for up to 180 days).
