Oregon Administrative Rules

The complete set of the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality administrative rules is available in hardcopy for a minimal cost. For questions about DEQ's administrative rules, contact Meyer Goldstein at 800-452-4011 x6478 or 503-229-6478 or email.

The Environmental Quality Commission adopts proposed rules or modifications to DEQ's existing administrative rules. The commission convenes every other month. Once adopted, the rules are filed with the Secretary of State's Office. DEQ's administrative rules and related documents are listed below. The rules, without the related documents, can be found on the Secretary of State's website.

The Secretary of State's listing of administrative rules is updated the first of each month. Updated rules contain all rule changes filed through the 15th of the month prior; for example if a rule change is filed on September 14, it will be added to the rule compilation on October 1. If the rule change is filed on September 16, it will be added to the rule compilation on November 1.
