Organizations that are enrolled or registered with the Criminal Records Review Program (CRRP) are required to submit criminal record checks for each independent contractor and subcontractor that may have direct access or potential for unsupervised access to children and/or vulnerable adults. The criminal record check must be processed under the organization that is enrolled or registered with the CRRP.
Process Flow and Example
John Smith works for Roofing Development Co., a company that has recently been hired to update a roof at the BC Public Hospital (BCPH). The BCPH falls within the definition of “employer” in the CRRA and is now responsible for completing a criminal record check for John. John is now regarded as an employee of BCPH and has potential for unsupervised access to children and/or vulnerable adults.
