(1) An applicant who has been the subject of any adverse action, including the imposition of a civil or criminal penalty, is not qualified for an Oregon authorization to practice until the Office determines the scope and applicability of the disciplinary action as it relates to the applicant’s fitness to practice or use a professional title under an Office-administered program. The disciplinary record may include, but is not limited to, actions imposed from:
(a) An Oregon health professional regulatory board as defined in ORS 676.160 (Definitions for ORS 676.165 to 676.180);

(2) Pursuant to ORS 181A.195 (Criminal records check), and in accordance with OAR 125-007-0200 (Statement of Purpose) through 127-007-0330, the Office may determine an applicant’s fitness to practice in accordance with ORS 181A.195 (Criminal records check) and 670.280 (Denial, suspension or revocation of license based on criminal conviction).
(3) Material misrepresentation or material errors of fact on an application or renewal are grounds for disqualification of examination or discipline under ORS 676.612 (Disciplinary authority), or both.

(i) All additional information required by the Office.
(6) An applicant may be required to provide two forms of original identification issued by a federal, state or local government agency.

Acceptable identification includes, but is not limited to:
(a) An original or certified copy of birth certificate. The Office will not accept a hospital-issued birth certificate, hospital card or birth registration or baptismal certificate.
