Oregon Bulletin

October 1, 2012

Department of Consumer and Business Services, Building Codes Division, Chapter 918

Rule Caption: Amendment of radon gas mitigation standards in the 2010 OSSC.

Adm. Order No.: BCD 8-2012

Filed with Sec. of State: 8-31-2012

Certified to be Effective: 9-1-12

Notice Publication Date: 7-1-2012

Rules Amended: 918-460-0015

Subject: Senate Bill 1025 (2010) required the Building Codes Structures Board to adopt radon mitigation standards by January 1, 2011 for new public buildings in seven identified counties: Baker, Clackamas, Hood River, Multnomah, Polk, Washington, and Yamhill. The Board adopted commercial standards by the January 1, 2011 date mandated in the legislation, but acknowledged that the radon mitigation standards in the Oregon Structural Specialty Code (OSSC) for new public buildings still needed further work to provide the clarity and detail about the components of radon mitigation systems for new public buildings constructed to the OSSC. This rule amendment provides that needed clarity and specificity about the radon mitigation systems to be constructed for new public buildings. While the rule becomes effective September 1, 2012, it is only applicable to new public buildings for which initial building permits are issued on or after April 1, 2013.
