REALD Rules and Policies


The REALD rules (Chapter 943, Division 70) implement the Race, Ethnicity, Language, and Disability Demographic Data Collection Standards mandated by House Bill 2134 (2013).

The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) has revised these rules and Oregon Disease Reporting rules to implement sections 40 through 43 of House Bill 4212 (2020 1st Special Session). The bill requires OHA to establish rules requiring collection and reporting of REALD information for COVID-19 cases reported to OHA.
