Investigator Rules of Professional Conduct


Licensed investigators are required to comply with the requirements of conduct found in ORS 703.450 (Requirements of conduct). A violation of any of these standards may result in civil penalty pursuant to OAR 259-061-0200 (Compliance) or denial, suspension or revocation of the investigator’s license pursuant to OAR 259-061-0300 (Denial/Suspension/Revocation).


In addition to the requirements found in ORS 703.450 (Requirements of conduct) (8), any contracts provided by a licensed investigator to provide investigatory services must include the investigator’s legal name and Department-issued investigator license number.


For the purposes of ORS 703.450 (Requirements of conduct) (17), licensed investigators must maintain their client’s confidentiality by not intentionally revealing or releasing information about their client to a third party without the consent of the client or a clear legal reason. What is considered confidential information is to be determined between the investigator and their client. For the purposes of the Department’s enforcement of client confidentiality, the determination of what is confidential must be documented between the licensed investigator and their client.
