NOTE: THE COMMISSION ANTICIPATES THE GAPS GEMALTO WEBSITE TO LIST THE COMMISSION ON THEIR WEBSITE FOR REGISTRATIONS BY DECEMBER 7, 2020.

Fingerprint registration and submission should only be conducted following application instructions.

All persons identified on the application are required to submit at least one set of classifiable electronically recorded fingerprints to Georgia Applicant Processing Services for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) to conduct a criminal background and history check. After reviewing the results of the applicant’s background investigation, the GBI will provide the Commission with the findings.

If selected for award of a license, all persons identified on the application must submit fingerprints prior to production and/or dispensing beginning as a condition of licensure. The Commission shall review the record for all owners, officers, and employees of the applicant to ensure there are no drug-related convictions, except for felony convictions that are greater than ten years old, are not drug related, or have been expunged or pardoned. Any employee found to be in violation of Georgia law for low-THC oil production laws or Commission Rules will result in automatic revocation of the production license by the Commission.

By submitting fingerprints to Georgia Applicant Processing Services, applicants acknowledge that the applicant, the company, all owners, officers, and employees have been informed of the Non-Criminal Justice Applicant’s Privacy Rights and the Privacy Act Statement (Title 28 United States Code § 534) and give express consent for the Commission or GBI to conduct periodic criminal history background checks for the duration of ownership or employment.
