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. The CCB educates the public about how to avoid problems on construction projects and helps mediate disputes between homeowners and licensed contractors.

Formed in 1971 as the Builders Board to license residential contractors, the agency was subsequently renamed and authority expanded to regulate commercial contractors as well. To become licensed, contractors must meet minimum education and experience requirements and pass a test. Licensed contractors are subject to continuing education requirements.

The CCB employs approximately 60 people. Enforcement officers and dispute mediators are deployed across the state. The board is made up of nine members appointed by the governor and confirmed by the Oregon Senate. Members represent different segments of the construction industry, the public and local government.
