Inspection. Any record of the Board that is defined as a public record under ORS 192.410 to 192.505, and that is not exempt from disclosure, shall be available for inspection by members of the public at the office of the Board, in Salem, Oregon. All requests for inspection or copies of Board public records must be made in writing. Inspection of such records will be permitted:
