Building Codes Division - DCBS > Web site
In 1973, the Oregon Legislature established a statewide uniform building code and created the Building Codes Division to administer it. Having a statewide building code helps ensure a minimum level of safety in all areas of the state and a uniform regulatory environment for businesses, the general public and contractors. The Building Codes Division adopts building codes with the advice of seven statutory boards. The division certifies inspectors and licenses trade professionals and establishes training and education requirements; provides code and rule interpretation and dispute resolution; enforces license, code, and permit requirements to prevent unsafe conditions; and conducts inspections where local entities do not. The division also streamlines building permit processes through ePermitting and other programs.
