Rule R501-14

Background Screening

Five-Year Notice of Review and Statement of Continuation

DAR File No.: 39778

NOTICE OF REVIEW AND STATEMENT OF CONTINUATION

Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:

Section 62A-2-120 provides statutory authority to the Office of Licensing within the Department of Human Services to conduct background screenings on adult individuals that are licensed to provide foster care or treatment services. Rule R501-14 is the rule required to meet the statute. H.B. 145 from the 2015 General Session made changes to the underlying statute. The Office of Licensing is currently working on updated, amended rule within the 180 allotted days to do so. This five-year review is simply to continue the former rule until the new rule based on new statute is in effect.

Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:

No comments were received for Rule R501-14 as the rule has not changed.

Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:

Section 62A-2-120 requires that all adults that provide services to children or vulnerable adults are required to submit and clear a background screen conducted by the Office of Licensing for the Department of Human Services. H.B. 145 from the 2015 General Session made changes to the underlying statute and the Office of Licensing is working to make updated revisions to comply with the amendments. R501-14 is needed to comply with statute, and therefore, this rule should be continued.
