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 individual volumes.

Law libraries in Oregon typically purchase full compilation sets annually to aid administrative rule research. This is convenient for locating older versions of rules no longer 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 with 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.
