OAR 161-530-0010
Criminal Records Check


The Board shall conduct a criminal records check on a subject individual as a condition of issuing a registration as an appraisal management company, or when there is a change or addition of a subject individual of an appraisal management company.


The subject individual shall submit a completed criminal background authorization on a form prescribed by the Board, along with a fingerprint card.


The subject individual shall provide additional information, as requested by the Board, to resolve any issue hindering the completion of a criminal background check and/or fitness determination.


The Board shall request that the Oregon State Police conduct Oregon and nationwide criminal records checks through fingerprint identification. The Board may request or conduct a Law Enforcement Data System (LEDS) criminal records check, as part of any criminal background check and/or fitness determination, to meet the requirements of this rule.


If a subject individual refuses to consent to a criminal records check, including fingerprint identification, the Board shall not issue a registration as an appraisal management company. A subject individual may not contest any determination made based on a refusal to consent.


Withholding information, misrepresentation, or submission of untrue or false statements as part of the criminal background authorization are deemed to demonstrate untrustworthiness and are cause for a civil penalty under ORS 674.995 (Civil penalties for violation of ORS 674.200 to 674.250) and either denial or subsequent disciplinary action, including revocation of registration.
