Regulatory Unit
Regulatory Unit
The regulatory unit provides fingerprint based background check services for agencies having authority through Oregon statute, Federal Law or by Governor´s Executive Order to perform such checks for regulatory purposes to include: licensing, certification, permits, employment.
 
The Regulatory Unit conducts a statewide check, and an FBI nationwide check for agencies granted that authority. The funding for this Unit is based on user fees of $28.00 for non-retained and $27.00 if the card is retained at Oregon State Police, billed for each fingerprint card submission for Oregon background check and $24.00 for FBI processing fee for national background check.
 
The Regulatory Unit also provides fingerprint based background checks for Oregon Sheriffs on Concealed Handgun License applicants.

Voluntary Central Criminal Records Check Registry (VCCRC)

The Voluntary Central Criminal Records Check Registry is a name and date of birth (DOB) database of persons who have cleared a fingerprint based background check in accordance with Oregon Revised Statute (ORS) 181.533, 181.534, 181.537 or 267.237, who have no criminal history and have requested to be placed into the registry. 

 

This registry can be accessed by those authorized state agencies that are conducting background checks under ORS 181.533, 181.534, 181.537 or 267.237.  The database can only be accessed once the agency has offered the individual employment.  This information can then be used in substitution to conducting a fingerprint based background check.  Each agency authorized under ORS 181.533, 181.534, 181.537 or 267.237 decides if they will participate in using the registry as a substitution to a fingerprint based background checks. 

All entries into the Voluntary Central Criminal Records Check Registry are only accurate from the date the original fingerprint based background check was performed and not from the date of entry into the registry. 

A state of Oregon name based check will be conducted once a year to confirm retention or removal from the Voluntary Central Criminal Records Checks Registry.  This is not a national check.

In order to participate in the Voluntary Central Criminal Records Checks Registry the follow criteria must be met:

  • A background check was conducted by an authorized agency under ORS 181.533, 181.534, 181.537 or 267.237.
  •  The fingerprint based background check resulted in NO criminal activity being reported. 
  • The individual subject to the fingerprint based background check must fill out an application and submit the information to the Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Division by Facsimile, email or mail, requesting entry into the registry.
