(c)

A conditionally enrolled subject individual who is subsequently determined to be suitable based on FBI criminal records information shall be enrolled in the Central Background Registry.

If an application for renewal and payment of the required fee is received by OCC at least 14 days prior to the expiration date of the current enrollment, the enrollment remains in effect until OCC has acted upon the application for renewal and given notice of the action taken. This subsection does not apply to a renewal application submitted by an individual who is removed from the Central Background Registry at the time of submission of the renewal application.
