COVID-19 Continuing Education Relief for OSLAB Registrants - Public Comments Requested on Rulemaking Action

At a public meeting held 08/05/2020, OSLAB approved temporary rulemaking to put in place changes to OAR 804-025-0010 for purposes of expanding options available to OSLAB registrants for requesting exemption from standard continuing education requirements. OSLAB determined there was sufficient need and justification to adopt the temporary rule, which was designed to provide more flexibility to address the potential impacts of COVID-19 emergency on the ability of individual registrants to complete annual continuing education requirements. The temporary rule went into effect on 08/07/2020 and can remain in place for up to 180 days, i.e., through 02/02/2021. OSLAB is now seeking public comment on proposed rulemaking to make the changes to OAR 804-025-0010 permanent.  The comment deadline on the permanent rulemaking proposal is 09/30/2020 at 5 PM, and a rulemaking hearing will be held on that same date at 3 PM.  The public can attend the hearing by phone; dial 1-669-900-9128 or 1-253-215-8782 and enter meeting ID# 951-2638-5743 and passcode 972451.  For more information including the rule language and details on how to submit comments to OSLAB, please see the administrative order for the temporary rule and the notice of permanent rulemaking/hearing.  

COVID-19 Public Health Emergency

In response to guidance from public health officials, OSLAB is not providing in-person services at its office at this time except by prior appointment. This is in accordance with guidelines for protecting public health and also due to potential workforce limitations tied to the COVID-19 public health emergency. Some OSLAB services can be completed online, and most can be completed via email or phone, thereby eliminating the need for most in-person visits to the OSLAB office. Please contact OSLAB staff at oslab.info@oregon.gov or 503-589-0093 if you need assistance.

You can access current information about the COVID-19 public health emergency and sign up for email updates about COVID-19 at the Oregon Health Authority website.  Information about assistance available to Oregon small businesses impacted by the emergency can be found at the Business Oregon website.
