  • rules

Notwithstanding ORS 455.030 (Rulemaking) and 455.110 (Other duties of director), the Director of the Department of Consumer and Business Services may initiate the adoption of rules the director considers necessary to interpret, harmonize, streamline, adjust, administer or enforce the state building code when any provision of the state building code is unclear, duplicative or in conflict with another or when the code does not adequately address a project of a unique type or scope. The director must obtain the approval of the appropriate advisory boards prior to adopting a rule under this section. [2003 c.367 §2]

Note: 455.112 (Elimination of unclear, duplicative, conflicting or inadequate provisions) 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.
