Waivers of Provisions Provided by Rule in This Chapter


The Director or the Directors designee may formally waive requirements otherwise prescribed by this chapter of administrative rules, if such a waiver serves to further the goals and objectives of ORS Chapters 285A, 285B and 285C and results in sound economic development or job creation in the state, such that:

(1)

The requirement must be an invention of the administrative rule itself, and not arise from policies established by the Commission or from any state or federal law, including cases where state law might in some way be ambiguous, but the administrative rule is considered to correctly and optimally clarify or interpret that law;

(2)

This rule applies whether or not the division of administrative rule similarly provides for waiver by the Director; and

(3)

This rule does not interfere with other ways to make exceptions or to provide flexibility, as described elsewhere for certain administrative rules, and it is not meant to substitute for the timely amendment of administrative rules.
