Temporary Rules

Notice of Temporary Rulemaking - OAR 333-275-1000
Hemodialysis Technician Provisional Certification During Declared Emergency

In its response to the outbreak of the COVID-19 disease and the declaration of emergency by both the U.S Department of Health and Human Services' and the Governor of Oregon, the Oregon Health Authority (Authority) is temporarily amending  OAR 333-275-1000 to allow more time for certified hemodialysis technicians to complete their full certification. This change ensures maintenance of the hemodialysis workforce to provide appropriate and necessary services during the COVID-19 declared emergency. This rule clarifies that the Authority may extend an emergency provisional certification for a time period specified by the Authority or until the state of emergency is terminated, whichever is earlier.

This temporary rule is effective May 13, 2021 through November 8, 2021, or until it is suspended when the Governor terminates the declaration of emergency issued on March 8, 2020.

For more details, please see the Temporary Administrative Order including the Statement of Need and Justification and the full text of the temporary rule below:
