During the timeframe for proposing code amendments, an interested person may also recommend that the division incorporate, statewide code interpretations and alternate method rulings into the Oregon specialty code.

The division, in consultation with an appropriate advisory board, reviews prior code amendments, statewide code interpretations, and alternate method rulings during the code adoption and amendment process.
