Present Duties

The Construction Contractors Board (CCB) protects Oregonians by preventing and resolving construction contracting problems. The agency licenses contractors, investigates complaints against licensees and penalizes unlawful contractors. It educates the public about how to avoid problems on construction projects and help mediate disputes between homeowners and licensed contractors.


The board was formed in 1971 as the Builders Board and currently employs about 60 people in its Salem offices. The CCB is governed by a nine-member board that is appointed by the governor and confirmed by the Oregon Senate. Members represent different segments of the construction industry, the public and local government.

The agency is committed to educating the public about the importance of using licensed contractors who are bonded and insured, and to finding and penalizing unlicensed contractors. As the Internet has created new ways to solicit business, the agency monitors places like Craigslist to ensure contractors who advertise hold valid licenses.

Over the years, the CCB has expanded its education section to implement laws requiring better-educated licensees. Licensed contractors pass a pre-license test and are subject to continuing education requirements.
