SB44Enrolled.pdf (authority to revise qualifications for Certified Engineering Geologist, miscellaneous administrative updates)
Senate Bills (SB) 43 and 44 were submitted by Governor Kate Brown on behalf of OSBGE for consideration during the 2019 session of the Oregon Legislature. Both bills have now been passed by the Oregon Legislature and signed by Governor Brown. The bills are effective 1/1/2020. Neither bill makes immediate changes to registration requirements. OSBGE will need to pursue rulemaking in 2020 in order to implement changes authorized by SB 43 and 44.  

Scam alert for OSBGE registrants

The attached flyer provides a proactive warning about a potential scam targeting geologists holding professional registrations.  Read for tips on how to recognize scams involving requests for registration-related payments or sensitive information. The Board will not ask for payments or sensitive information over the phone, by email, or by text. The Board encourages its registrants to contact the Board office if ever faced with a question about whether a phone call, e-mail, or other request is legitimately from the Board.
