Background Investigation Required Prior to Oregon Licensure


All applicants for individual or facility licenses and principals of facilities seeking or holding a license must submit to a background investigation. The background investigation may include, but is not limited to, information solicited from the Law Enforcement Data Systems, other government agencies or courts, personal references, former employers, and credit checks. The Board may require the applicant or principal to furnish any information necessary to perform a background investigation.


The Board may deny, suspend or refuse to issue or renew a license or certificate when a condition exists in relation to any principal of a licensed facility which constitutes grounds for refusing to issue or renew a license or certificate or for suspension of a license.
