Liquefied Petroleum Gas Licenses

As established by the Oregon Administrative Rules and the Oregon Revised Statutes, the Office of the State Fire Marshal of Oregon is responsible for the administration and enforcement of standards, policies, and regulations for liquefied petroleum gas activities to ensure public safety. The Office of the State Fire Marshal (OSFM) is in charge of issuing licenses related to propane and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) work. Alongside issuing licenses, the OSFM is the agency that manages the examination process for the LPG licenses.

There are two categories of LPG licenses in Oregon: Business and Individual Licenses. Oregon issues a Company License for all businesses that, as a whole, engage in propane or LPG-related activities, and it issues three more licenses for private individuals: Heating, Venting, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) Fitter, Internal Combustion (IC) Fitter, and Master Fitter.
