Background: The current 2022 Oregon Fire Code review and adoption process are underway, which will be based off the 2021 International Fire Code (IFC). The Oregon fire code serves as the Oregon fire service's manual to protect the public and all residents from the hazards of fire, explosions, or dangerous conditions in buildings and other facilities.

The Oregon Code Advisory Board recommends Oregon Fire Code issues to the State Fire Marshal. This includes reviewing and providing recommendations on the adoption of the Oregon Fire Code and the Oregon Defensible Space Code. In addition, they provide advice and guidance on code enforcement issues, regional disputes, policies, and emerging topics that affect the fire protection and life safety of Oregonians.
