The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) has adopted the first subset of rules related to psilocybin products, testing and training programs. These rules are needed to implement
ORS chapter 475A, the Oregon Psilocybin Services Act.
The rules specify curriculum requirements for programs planning to train people interested in facilitating psilocybin services in Oregon, as well as initial requirements related to psilocybin products and testing. Please keep in mind that this is only a sub-section of the rules. A second rulemaking process will occur for the remainder of the rules this coming Fall.
Rules Advisory Committees (RACs)
Rules Advisory Committees (RACs) are an important part of the rulemaking process that allow members of the public an opportunity to discuss proposed administrative rules before they become effective. RACs are comprised of individuals who have subject matter expertise and members of the public who are likely to be affected by the proposed rules. The RAC process is designed to include a diversity of opinions, viewpoints, and lived experiences. Although RACs evaluate fiscal and racial impact of the proposed rules and make recommendations, Oregon Health Authority retains decision making authority.
A second round of rulemaking in the fall will focus on the remainder of the rules. The remainder of rules will be posted and open for public comment in November 2022, with all final rules adopted by December 31, 2022. We will post an announcement for applications to serve on the upcoming RACs on this page sometime in the summer.
