Mark your calendar and note that the Health Licensing Office (and all State of Oregon agencies) will be closed on the following days:
The Health and Licensing Office (HLO) is hosting two in-person meetings at the Oregon Garden Resort in Silverton, Oregon.
The purpose of the June 13, 2023, Board of Cosmetology meeting is to reconcile current rules with proposed definitions related to devices and skin depth for estheticians, conduct regular board business, and provide a forum for community engagement and feedback for future rule changes.
The Health Licensing Office (HLO) will begin accepting applications for the new Electrology Temporary Training Program (Training Program) on April 15, 2023. The Training Program was created to help reduce barriers for individuals trying to obtain licensure in Oregon.
In 2021, the Health Licensing Office (HLO) convened a Joint Esthetic and Advanced Esthetic Rules Advisory Committee (Joint RAC) to collaborate and recommend rule changes to the Board of Cosmetology (COS Board) and the Board of Certified Advanced Estheticians (CAE Board), including defining the term “device" within both the advanced esthetics and esthetics professions as required in HB 2970 (2021).
