Electronic Fingerprinting

Posted in Latest News on April 17, 2013.

Effective January 1, 2013, applicants for initial licensure must use an approved Livescan Service Provider to submit electronic fingerprints to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) for the purpose of conducting a search for any Florida and national criminal history records that may pertain to applicant. The results of the search will be returned to the Care Provider Background Screening Clearinghouse and made available to the Department for consideration during the licensure process. The fingerprints submitted by the applicant will be retained by FDLE and the Clearinghouse. All costs for conducting a criminal history background screening are borne by the applicant.

It is important to use the correct Originating Agency Identification (ORI) when submitting fingerprints. If you do not provide an ORI number or if you provide an incorrect ORI number to the Livescan service provider, the board office will not receive your fingerprint results.

The ORI number for the Board of Podiatric Medicine is EDOH2017Z.

The applicant is fully responsible for selecting an approved Livescan Service Provider and for ensuring the results are reported to the Department. Print this electronic fingerprinting form and take it with you to a Livescan Service Provider.
