State of Oregon Updates Geologic Services Consumer Guide
Updated: Jan 20
The Oregon State Board of Geologist Examiners has updated its very helpful Consumer Guide. The guide is designed to help the general public find, hire, and work with geoscientists, but also provides resources for geoscientist seeking licensure for Geologist-in-Training (GIT), Registered Geologist (R.G.), and Certified Engineering Geologist (CEG). Categories for the general public include:
The online Consumer Guide is intended to provide a high-level overview of the regulated (i.e., registered a.k.a. licensed) practice of geology in the State of Oregon for those who may use geologic services. It is not exhaustive and presents generalized information. Additional information can be found in the Oregon Revised Statutes (ORS) 672.505 through 672.991, the Oregon Administrative Rules (OAR) 809-001-0000 through 809-060-0003, and the Oregon State Board of Geologist Examiners (OSBGE) “Professional Practices Guidance” Document. In addition, OSBGE has published a number of other documents and newsletters that discuss the public practice of geology in Oregon. These documents are found on the OSBGE webpage.
