Secondhand Precious Metals Dealers
Since January 1, 2013, Oregon has a new
law regulating precious metal secondhand dealers (ORS Chapter 99)
Precious metal secondhand dealers who solicit, receive, purchase, trade
or accept delivery of items of precious metal from individuals in return for money or other consideration are required to follow
state law. They
may also be subject to local city or county ordinances
for seller identification, recordkeeping, minimum property holding periods, and law enforcement notification.

that impose record keeping
requirements and precious metal holding periods
that are as strict or stricter than the state's.
Oregon cities and counties with an ordinance or law regulating precious metal secondhand dealers are required to provide a copy of the ordinance to the Secretary of State at email@example.com
