Changes to Continuing Education Rules When COVID-19 State of Emergency is Lifted

​​In the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Health Licensing Office suspended continuing education rules that required in-person education and put in place Oregon Administrative Rule (OAR) 331-030-0036, which outlined remote continuing education through online courses, remote access, webinars or self-study. When the Governor lifts the state of emergency on April 1, 2022, the suspended rules reactivate, but OAR 331-030-0036 will allow authorization holders (licensees, certification or registration holders) to keep obtaining remote CE for 60 days after that date, until May 31, 2022.

Proposed Rule Language for Behavior Analysis Regulatory Board

​The Behavior Analysis Regulatory Board under the Health Licensing Office has filed proposed rules with the Oregon Secretary of State. The proposed language adds the requirement that licensed behavior analysts and assistant behavior analysts have a policy on the use of restraints, and will be published in the February 2021, Oregon Bulletin

You are invited to review the proposed rules and submit comments from February 1 through March 3, 2021 at 11 a.m. 

Resources for COVID-19 Vaccine Information

The Health Licensing Office (HLO) is passing along Resources for COVID-19 Vaccine Information from the Oregon Health Authority (OHA), Public Health Division to our active authorization holders and stakeholders. This resource offers contact information for the OHA COVID-19 Vaccine Planning Unit, provider enrollment, and media questions; OHA COVID-19 Vaccine Online Information; CDC COVID-19 Communications Toolkit and vaccine information for consumers; Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) fact sheet; and the Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine Online Training and Education Series.

We hope you find this information useful as the COVID-19 vaccine rollout for Oregon has begun. As always, please check the OHA COVID-19 Updates website, and the COVID-19 Healthcare Partner Resources website for additional information.

Authorization Holders Compliance During Declared Emergency

​​The Health Licensing Office has filed a permanent Oregon Administrative Rule (OAR) that clarifies the expectations of all authorization holders (licensed, certified, or registered) regarding the COVID-19 crisis and the Governor of Oregon's declared state of emergency. This permanent rule follows the temporary rule that took effect on May 15, 2020. The permanent rule language went into effect on November 20, 2020.​
