Subject: During the 2011 Legislative Session the House Health Care Committee introduced House Bill 2013 which created a Board of Body Art Practitioners (Board) within the Oregon Health Licensing Agency (Agency), beginning January 1, 2012, and abolished the Advisory Council for Electrologists, Permanent Color Technicians and Tattoo Artists. The Board was created to advise the Agency with regard to the regulation of each field of practice i.e. body piercing, dermal implanting, electrology, scarification and tattooing including administrative rules.

      Repeal administrative rules for the Advisory Council for Electrologists, Permanent Color Technicians and Tattoo Artists (Council) OAR Chapter 331, Division 500 through 590 and the Body Piercing Licensing Program (Program) OAR Chapter 331, Division 205 through 225 and merge the text into Chapter 331, Division 900 through 940 which relates specifically to the Board of Body Art Practitioners.

      Adopt amend and repeal rules to align with current industry, Agency and statewide rulemaking standards and principles. Administrative rules have been streamlined to be consistent with statutory authority and Agency protocol.

      Definitions Adopt definitions for each field of practice (with the exception of standard and specialty piercing) and standards which are relevant to body art. Define terms which are utilized within the rule for efficiency including defining specific types of piercing services including single point and earlobe.

      Education & Training Adopt rules creating an approved education or training program for standard body piercing. Currently there is no Department of Education Private Career Schools licensed under ORS 345 in Oregon. A training program has been developed to include 1150 of combined theory and practical hours which include 400 various body piercing procedure. The training requires direct supervision of an Agency approved supervisor. The training program includes various health and piercing related topics within its curriculum (jewelry, applied sciences and standards.)

      Education for electrology and tattooing has been streamlined to be consistent with statutory authority and Agency protocol.

      Licensing Currently the Agency licenses earlobe piercers separate from body piercers; however HB 2013 does not delineate between these two practices. A temporary earlobe license has been created to permit an individual to perform earlobe piercing services only on a temporary basis for up to two years. Qualifications to become a temporary earlobe piercer include training in cardiopulmonary resuscitation, basic first aid and aftercare by an agency approved provider.

      HB 2013 states that as of January 1, 2012, any individual practicing body piercing must hold a body piercing license unless they are a student under the direct supervision of a faculty of a school licensed under ORS 345. In order to allow training for body piercers to commence a ”standard body piercing trainee license” has been created to allow an individual who has met certain qualifications including completing blood borne pathogens, cardiopulmonary resuscitation and basic first aid by an Agency approved provider. A standard body piercing trainee license is valid for one year and may be renewed one time. A standard body piercing trainee must work under the direct supervision of an Agency approved supervisor which requires the supervisor to have a current standard body piercing license, five years experience and pass the Agency approved written and practical examination. Supervisors must adhere to supervising a one to one ratio per shift, notification of a supervisor change and documentation.

      Administrative rules address application requirements to become a standard body piercer, including examination. An individual applying for licensure may qualify through one of the following pathways graduate from an Oregon licensing career school, qualification through temporary body piercing trainee license under the direct supervision of an Agency approved supervisor; or through reciprocity. To qualify for a standard body piercing license an individual must pass the Agency approved written and practical examination

      Adopt temporary practitioner licenses for each field of practice to allow out-of-state individuals the opportunity to perform body art services on a limited basis in Oregon without first meeting the requirements of permanently licensed individuals in a field of practice, while ensuring public protection. Qualifications include attestation to six months experience and current blood borne pathogens training. Temporary practitioner licenses must work in a licensed facility.

      Licensing requirements for electrology and tattooing has been streamlined to be consistent with statutory authority and Agency protocol.

      Examinations Approved examinations for each fields of practice in each division including Agency administered practical examinations for standard body piercing. Set parameters for general examination including identification requirements and retake policy.

      Renewal Amend rules to standardize renewal requirements for each field of practice and facility licensure renewal. Describe a license as active, inactive or expired and the process for renewal including continuing education requirements when applicable.

      As of January 2012 body piercers who currently hold a body piercing license will be required to pass the Agency approved written and practical examinations before renewing their standard body piercing license. Current body piercers will be prohibited from practicing specialty level 1 and 2 piercings. Prohibited piercing services are testes, deep shaft (corpus cavernosa), uvula, eyelids and sub-clavicle.

      Upon renewal of any electrology, body piercing or tattoo facility license issued before January 1, 2012, must meet application and qualification requirements for a “body art facility license.” Each facility is required to have one body art facility license the single field of practice facility licenses i.e. electrology, body piercing or tattoo facility license are being eliminated.

      Rule changes include amending continuing education to 10 hours annually for each field of practice and auditing requirements in order to streamline with Agency protocols and documentation requirements. Also includes disciplinary authority for failing to meet continuing education requirements.

      Revise renewal requirements related to notification of changes to business name or ABN for facility license holders.

      Facility Licensing Align facility license application requirements for electrology, tattooing and body piercing which have been streamlined into a “body art facility license.” Align with Agency protocols including requiring a “natural person” be the owner of a facility. Other streamlining initiatives are age requirement and current registration of business name or Assumed Business Name (ABN) as filed with the Secretary of State, Corporations Division corporations. Allow all fields of practice to work under all body art facilities including temporary, mobile and event facilities.

      Standards Merge standards for all licensees and facilities to one division, uniformly requiring the same safety and infection control standards for all fields of practice. New standards include specific hand washing and glove requirements and sterilization protocols. Client records have been standardized to include pertinent client information, signature from the client that all information has been provided including informed consent documents and aftercare information.

      Civil Penalties Move civil penalties for each field of practice under one division and align statutory and administrative rule references.

      Dermal Implanting and Scarification Dermal implanting and scarification are prohibited.

      Informed Consent Require that each licensee provide a uniform document which provides procedures, risks and alternatives related to specific body piercings and general information related to all body piercings. The client is required to sign that they have been informed and agree to the procedure.
