On January 17, 2020, the Oregon Health Authority, Health Licensing Office (Office), on behalf of the Board of Cosmetology (Board), received an Amended Petition to Repeal Administrative Rule OAR 817-010-0067.

According to ORS 183.390, the Office and Board are required to begin the rulemaking process or deny the petitioner’s request within 90 days of receiving the petition. Before any decision can be made, however, the Office and Board must invite public comment pursuant to ORS 183.390.

The Office and Board invite public comment on whether options exist for achieving the rule’s substantive goals in a way that reduces the negative impact on businesses, as well as other public comment, including information on any of these factors:

  • The continued need for the rule;
  • The complexity of the rule;
  • The extent to which the rule overlaps, duplicates or conflicts with other state rules or federal regulations
