Administrative Rules

 Content Editor

Oregon Administrative Rules (OARs) are the directives, standards, and regulations that help state government put state law into practice. Below, you can find information about the rules guiding our work at Oregon State Treasury, including ways to get involved with the process to propose and adopt new or amended rules.

Permanent Rulemaking in progress


The rules, as currently written, provide flexibility for the Oregon Retirement Savings Board to identify a date(s) for the final wave of employer registration deadlines as a date on or after October 1, 2021 to be published on the program website. The amendment would provide clarity for employers by specifically identifying the employer registration deadline dates in the rules to ensure clear and consistent communication with employers. Oregon employers are required by statute to comply with requirements to facilitate the program. The proposed rules clarify the process for compliance and codify the authority of the Oregon Retirement Savings Board to file a complaint with the Commissioner of the Bureau of Labor and Industries.
