The additional information may include, but is not limited to, an evaluation or assessment by a physician, counselor or other qualified person, documents to determine positive identification of the subject individual, and court documents.

(b) Passage of time since the incident occurred;

(c) Circumstances surrounding the incident;

(d) Intervening circumstances since the occurrence of the incident; and

Rights for Review and Contested Case Hearings

(1) OCC shall afford subject individuals the right to appeal a decision made by OCC that the subject individual is denied, suspended, or removed from enrollment from the Central Background Registry through a contested case hearing pursuant to ORS 183.413 through 183.470. Subject individuals must submit a request for a contested case hearing in writing in a timely manner.

(2) OCC has no jurisdiction in a contested case hearing over allegations that the criminal records information received from OSP or the FBI or child protective services information received from the Department of Human Services is inaccurate, incomplete or maintained in violation of any federal or state law. Therefore, a contested case hearing cannot be held by OCC for that purpose. Challenges to the accuracy or completeness of the information provided by the Department of State Police, the FBI and agencies reporting information to OCC must be made through those departments, bureaus or agencies and not through the contested case process.

(3) OCC is entitled to rely on the criminal records information supplied by OSP or the FBI or child protective services information supplied by the Department of Human Services until OSP, the FBI, or the Department of Human Services notifies OCC that information has been changed or corrected in a manner that would alter the OCC decision. If a subject individual has requested a contested case hearing, OCC will stay the hearing until the subject individual has been afforded a reasonable time to correct or complete the record or has declined to do so.

(4) To preserve the confidentiality of the records and the privacy of the subject individual, any contested case hearing will not be open to the public unless requested by the subject individual.

(5) A subject individual who is also an employee of the licensing unit of OCC and who is determined unsuitable for enrollment in the Central Background Registry may appeal the determination through either the contested case process or applicable personnel rules, policies and collective bargaining provisions. A subject individual's decision to appeal a determination through personnel rules, policies and collective bargaining provisions shall constitute an election of remedies as to the rights of the subject individual with respect to the disqualification determination and shall constitute waiver of the contested case process.
