Buy the OARs
Oregon Administrative Rules Compilation
The Oregon Administrative Rules (OARs) Compilation is a 26-volume print publication containing the complete text of OARs filed through Nov. 15 of the previous year. The compilation is available for purchase as a complete set or in individual volumes.
Law libraries in Oregon typically purchase full compilation sets annually to aid administrative rule
research. This is a convenient way of locating older versions of rules no longer accessable on the current OAR website.
Attorneys, government agencies and others with interest in the
OARs of a particular state agency often buy the volume
of the compilation containing that agency's rules.
The Oregon Bulletin
The Oregon Bulletin is a monthly online publication containing rulemaking notices and hearings, recently filed permanent and temporary rules, and certain non-OAR notices. The Bulletin supplements the annual OAR Compilation by providing information on upcoming rulemaking actions by state agencies, including information on where, when and how to testify or comment on proposed rule changes.
The Bulletin publishes filing information and full text of adopted and amended permanent and temporary rules. It also contains a cumulative index
listing all permanent and
rule actions since publication
of the most recent compilation.
Print-on-demand versions of the Bulletin
can be purchased from the Administrative Rules Unit.
