The CRC is a mandatory process required by law of registrants of professional regulatory bodies. The Criminal Records Review Act ensure that people who work with or may have potential for unsupervised access to children or vulnerable adults undergo a CRC by the Criminal Records Review Program (CRRP). Dentists, dental therapists, and CDAs who fail to comply with the criminal record check will not be eligible to register or renew their registration/certification. CDSBC will automatically submit CRC applications on behalf of registrants whose CRC is due to expire. The annual renewal fee will include one fifth of the cost of a CRC and registrants will be asked to consent to a CRC as part of their online renewal for the year their CRC expires.
For more information on the criminal record check, read our Criminal Record Check FAQs.
As part of the CRC process, the CRRP will conduct a Vulnerable Sector (VS) Check. The VS Check is based on a search of name, date of birth, and gender. If the VS Check finds a match of any of the parameters with a pardoned sex offender, you will receive a letter requesting fingerprints. If you are required to complete the VS Check, please inform CDSBC staff so that we are aware of the delay.
For more information on the VS check, read our VS check FAQs.
