Public Records Requests

A request for public records that are in the custody of the Oregon Mortuary and Cemetery Board may be made by submitting a written request.

The request must include:
  • The name and address of the person requesting the public record;
  • The telephone number or email address of the person requesting the public record; and
  • A sufficiently detailed description of the record(s) requested to allow the Board to search for and identify responsive records.
  • The request must be dated and signed by the person requesting the public record.
Please note, with the exception of notices of proposed disciplinary action and final orders, records containing information obtained as part of an investigation of a licensee or applicant are exempt from public disclosure. State law prohibits the Board from disclosing such records. See Oregon Revised Statue 676.165 and 676.175 for additional information.

A request may be submitted by mail, fax, or email, or can be delivered in person to the Board's office. Submitting a record request in person does not mean that you will receive documents on the same day of your request.

Oregon Mortuary and Cemetery Board
800 NE Oregon St, Suite 430

Fees for Public Records
Per OAR 830-020-0050, the Board may charge a fee reasonably calculated to reimburse the agency for costs of providing and conveying copies of public records. All fees and charges must be paid before public records will be available for inspection or copies provided.

The Board may furnish copies of public information without charge or at a substantially reduced fee if the Board determines that the waiver or reduction of fees is in the public interest because making the record available primarily benefits the general public, per ORS 192.440(4).  The person requesting the public records must request a waiver or reduction of fees and must explain why allowing the waiver or reduction is in the public interest.
