Regulatory Applicant Background Check Program

Regulatory Unit

Under ORS 181A.195​, 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, and volunteers.
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 cards and $27.00 if the card is retained at Oregon State Police.  These fees are billed for each fingerprint card submitted for an Oregon background check with an additional FBI processing fee for the nationwide background check: $10.75 for volunteer and $12.00 all other categories. 
The Regulatory Unit also provides fingerprint based background checks for Oregon Sheriffs on Concealed Handgun License applicants.
