Administrative Rule Adopted by Bureau Pursuant to Rule-Making Authority
ARB-ENB-13.09

 
Background:
Much of the bureau's enforcement action is initiated on the basis of confidential complaints.

 
Bureau Policy:
Names of complainants and information about them are to be confidential.

Under the Oregon Public Records Law ORS 192.410-500, we are not required to disclose information about complainants. These records are exempt from disclosure.
 
Names of complainants and information about them will not be given out to the public.
 
Written information and documents, such as complaint intake forms that have complainant names on them, can be provided with the complainant's name, address, and phone number blanked out.
 
Disclosure of a complainant's name may be relevant in a court case. The court could order disclosure in a particular instance. This is the only instance where complainants' names will be given out.
