Board of Licensed Dietitians - Proposed Rule Change

​​The Board of Licensed Dietitians under the Health Licensing Office has filed proposed rules with the Oregon Secretary of State. The proposed rule language clarifies the use of “inactive" and “expired" when referring to licenses and increases the continuing education documentation retention period from two to four years. The change is being proposed so "documentation retention" matches the continued education “carried forward" language in Oregon Administrative Rule 834-050-0000(2).​

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.​
