The results of a criminal background check for each applicant for authority, except for an applicant seeking an extension of existing authority. For the purpose of criminal background checks, “applicant” has the meaning ascribed to it in ORS 825.135 (Denial of certificate, permit, transfer or extension of authority), and includes each sole proprietor, all partners of a partnership, all officers and majority stockholders of a corporation, and all members of a limited liability company. The Department may obtain, or require an applicant to provide, a fingerprint based criminal background check if the Department is not satisfied that the criminal background check provided with the application is current or accurate.


Any other information or documents pertaining to the above requirements that the Department may deem appropriate.


Authority granted for extension of geographic area shall not be broader in terms of types of services offered than that granted in the original application. An application to remove a service restriction from an existing authority must be made as an application for new authority.


Authority sought by application for transfer must be limited to that authority contained in the certificate subject to transfer.


An application for transfer of a certificate must be accompanied by the following:


All items listed in subsections (1)(a) through (g) of this rule;


A written consent of transfer signed by the certificate holder or the certificate holder’s personal representative; and


Evidence under ORS 825.129 (Legal status of certificates) of authority to transfer the certificate or license, if the individual certificate holder is deceased, and the operation is to be continued for purpose of transfer.


When a certificate holder is granted additional authority by transfer or extension, the two authorities will be merged and a single authority will be issued.


Any application, petition or other filing that contains false information, is incomplete, or does not comply with all the Department’s rules and regulations may be rejected.


No certificate holder shall hold more than one certificate authorizing the same service.
