OAR 438-012-0032
Consent to Designation of Paying Agent


Except as provided in section (2) of this rule, when the Workers’ Compensation Division notifies the Board that it is prepared to issue an order designating a paying agent under ORS 656.307 (Determination of issues regarding responsibility for compensation payment) and OAR 436-060-0180 (Designation and Responsibility of a Paying Agent) if the Board consents to the order where one or more insurers involved in the proceeding is subject to ORS 656.278 (Board has continuing authority to alter earlier action on claim), the Board shall notify the Benefits Section within ten days whether it consents to the order.


If the Board is unable to determine from the available evidence whether the claimant would be entitled to Own Motion relief if the Own Motion insurer was determined to be the responsible insurer, the Board may require the parties to state their positions in writing and submit any supporting evidence to the Board within ten days. The time for the Board’s response to the Workers’ Compensation Division is suspended during this process.
