Criminal Records Check

Criminal Records Check

The Board's criminal records check requirement and reporting setup is pending final review by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Ohio Attorney General's Bureau of Criminal Investigation.  If you submit an application for initial license, you will receive additional information and instructions from the Board via e-mail about the completion of a criminal records check.  Please do not visit an authorized webcheck location until you receive the criminal records check instructions from the Board.  We expect to have final criminal records check instructions available for initial applicants by early March.  In the meantime, please begin the initial application process by submitting your application via the eLicense Ohio system and ensuring that all other required items are submitted.
