Background Checks for Child Welfare Agencies [22 VAC 40 ‑ 191]
Action:
WITHDRAWN Establish Replacement for 22 VAC 40-190
[Withdrawn 9/20/2002]
 
General Information
Action Summary The regulation establishes background clearances for criminal convictions and founded complaints of child abuse and neglect for child welfare agencies. It prohibits the licensing, approval, registration, and exemption of facilities when designated persons associated with the facility have certain criminal convictions or have ever been the subject of a founded complaint of child abuse or neglect. Facilities are prohibited from using a person for certain roles if the person has certain criminal convictions or has ever been the subject of a founded complaint of child abuse or neglect. Licensed child day centers and licensed child day center systems are not included in this regulation. The Regulation for Criminal Record Checks for Child Welfare Agencies, 22 VAC 40-190-10 et seq. is being repealed. The revisions required to amend 22 VAC 40-190-10 et seq. were so extensive that it is more efficient to repeal the existing regulation and promulgate a new regulation. The proposed new regulation incorporates significant Code of Virginia changes mandated by the 1998 General Assembly amendments, organizational changes requested during public comment, content changes requested during public comment, and clarifications.
