Purpose and Applicability of Rules


The State of Oregon promotes the use of cleaner solid fuel burning devices to reduce smoke created from wood heating and other solid fuels. Smoke from wood burning can be a significant source of air pollution and can have serious health consequences for people with asthma, respiratory or heart conditions or other illnesses. Children and the elderly are especially at risk.


This division regulates the sale and use of residential and commercial solid fuel burning devices to implement Oregon’s air quality regulations for public health and safety.


Subject to the requirements in this division and ORS 468A.100 (Definitions for ORS 468A.010 and 468A.100 to 468A.180) through 468A.180 (Payment of certain court costs not required), the Lane Regional Air Protection Agency is designated by the Environmental Quality Commission as the agency responsible for implementing this Division within its area of jurisdiction. The Regional Agency must implement the requirements and procedures contained in this division unless the Regional Agency adopts superseding rules at least as restrictive as this division.
