OREGON EXEMPTION FROM ENGINEERING REQUIREMENTS 
---------------------------------------------- 

This rule implements an exemption created by the Legislature in 2005 
with the passage of House Bill 2596. This rule allows certain licensed 
electricians to design, plan and layout the electrical portions of a 
fire protection system. 
This rule becomes effective January 1, 2009.

This rule allows a General Supervising Electrician, General Journeyman 
Electrician, and a Class A Limited Energy Technician, if employed by 
an electrical contractor and acting as a signing supervisor, to 
design, plan and layout the electrical portions of a fire protection 
system. This rule exempts these license types from the engineering 
requirements of the Oregon State Board of Examiners for Engineering 
and Land Surveying (OSBEELS).
