Important Code Change Update
The effective date of the Oregon Residential Specialty Code (ORSC), Oregon Electrical Specialty Code (OESC) and Oregon Plumbing Specialty Code (OPSC) is October 1, 2014.

The public process for each of these codes has been completed. It’s anticipated that the publication process will be completed in the next couple of months and that code books will be available for purchase shortly afterwards. The online version of these codes will be available here.

Additionally, the division will allow a three month transition period for implementation of the ORSC from October 1 to December 31.
