RULE §463.7Criminal History Record Reports

(a) Before issuing a license, the Board will obtain or require the applicant to obtain a criminal history record report as determined by the Board.

(b) The Board will obtain updated criminal history record reports on all licensees quarterly from the Texas Department of Public Safety.

(c) The Board may obtain an updated criminal history record report at any time on a licensee alleged to have violated the Act or rules of the Board.

(d) Each licensee who was not required to submit a fingerprint criminal history record report as a condition of licensure must submit a fingerprint criminal history record report to the Board as a condition for renewal. This one-time renewal requirement begins for January 2015 renewals and will be phased in with approximately one-fourth of licensees required to submit their reports in the first calendar year and remaining licensees required to submit their reports in the following three calendar years as prescribed by the Board. A report must be received by the Board before the eligible licensee is allowed to renew the license.

(e) A licensee requesting their license be returned to active status from inactive status, must undergo a fingerprint criminal history check before their license will be returned to active status if the licensee has not submitted to a fingerprint criminal history check for the Board in the past. A report must be received by the Board before the license will be returned to active status.
