A reminder that it is license renewal time! The Oregon Board of Naturopathic Medicine has moved to a new licensing database, so renewal will look a little different this year.
Licensure Renewal Period: December 1 – 31, 2019
Licensure Renewal Late Fee: Renewals submitted after December 31st 2019 @ 11:59pm will be charge a $150 restoration fee addition to all other licensure fees.
Continuing Education (CE) Audit Process: As part of the renewal procedure, all licenses shall provide the Board with a list of all CE credits earned in the previous year.
Ten percent (10%) of licensees that submit renewal applications will be selected at random for audit.
Licensees selected for audit will be notified on/about February 1, 2020 and will have 15 days to submit supporting documentation.
OBNM Rule Changes Proposal:
The Board of Naturopathic Medicine is proposing several rule changes to Oregon Administrative Rules Chapter 850. The Board submitted several draft rule filings with the Secretary of State, all drafts are available on the Administrative Rule Link on the agency website. The Board also posted all of the draft filings of the proposed rule changes on the Board website.
In compliance with statute and rule, the public comment period for the aforementioned rule filings ends on January 15, 2020 at 9am. However, the Board encourages you to review the draft rules and provide your feedback and/or suggestions to the Board for consideration prior to their bi-monthly Board meeting on December 9, 2019. (To be clear – the Board will review all public comments received up to the January 15, 2020, deadline. The request for an earlier response is for the Board efficiency only.)
