Buy the OARs
Oregon Administrative Rules Compilation
The Oregon Administrative Rules Compilation is a 19-volume print publication containing the complete text of OARs filed through Nov. 15 of the previous year. For example, the 2013 Compilation includes rules filed through Nov. 15, 2012. 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 that can no longer be accessed on the current OAR web site.
Attorneys, government agencies and others who have an 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 Oregon Administrative Rules Compilation by providing current 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 temporary administrative rule actions since publication of the most recent compilation. Print-on-demand versions of the Bulletin can be purchased from the Administrative Rules Unit.

Administrative Rule Compilation sets and individual volumes must be preordered during a November/December time frame that will be posted on this site. For more information or to order print versions of the Oregon Bulletin, email Julie Yamaka
