This is in addition to rules related to the implementation of Senate Bill 303, new legislation that requires service centers to collect and report client data related to psilocybin services. Proposed rules also address OHA requirements for approval of facilitator training programs.

All members of the public are invited to comment on the proposed rules during the public comment period scheduled for Nov. 1-21.

During this period, people can provide comments by e-mailing or by participating in one of the three virtual public hearings scheduled for:

  • Tuesday, Nov. 15, 6-7:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday, Nov. 16, 10-11:30 a.m.
  • Thursday, Nov. 17, 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m.

Background: The OPS section is required to adopt administrative rules to administer ORS chapter 475A, the Oregon Psilocybin Services Act. In December 2022, OPS adopted rules needed to begin regulating the production of psilocybin products and the provision of psilocybin services in Oregon. You can read current OPS administrative rules here: Oregon Administrative Rules 333-333

The rulemaking process is informed by recommendations from the Oregon Psilocybin Advisory Board (OPAB), input from Rules Advisory Committees (RACs), and comments received during public comment periods. After the 2023 public comment period, OHA will revise proposed rules based on public input and adopt a final set by the end of the year. OPS expects to open administrative rules during the fall of each year.
