The Director of the Department of Consumer and Business Services may adopt rules establishing uniform permit, inspection and certificate of occupancy requirements under the state building code. The rules may include, but need not be limited to, rules establishing standards for building inspections and inspection procedures and rules establishing uniform forms for certificates of occupancy. In adopting rules under this section, the director may establish a process for a municipality to address conditions that are unique to the municipality’s enforcement of the state building code or that are not addressed by the rules establishing uniform permit, inspection and certificate of occupancy requirements. [2007 c.549 §2]

Note: 455.055 (Uniform permit, inspection and certificate of occupancy requirements) was added to and made a part of ORS chapter 455 by legislative action but was not added to any smaller series therein. See Preface to Oregon Revised Statutes for further explanation.
