Periodic Review of Regulations

Department of Social Services

Pursuant to Executive Order Number 36 (2006), the Department of Social Services is currently reviewing 22 VAC 40-191, Background Checks for Child Welfare Agencies, to determine if it should be terminated, amended, or retained in its current form. The review will be guided by the principles listed in Executive Order Number 36 (2006) and in the department’s Plan for Review of Existing Agency Regulations.

The department seeks public comment regarding the regulation’s interference in private enterprise and life, essential need of the regulation, less burdensome and intrusive alternatives to the regulation, specific and measurable goals that the regulation is intended to achieve, and whether the regulation is clearly written and easily understandable.

Written comments may be submitted until May 5, 2008, in care of Karen Cullen, Program Consultant, Division of Licensing Programs at 7 North 8th Street, Richmond, Virginia 23219, by e-mail to, or by facsimile to (804) 726-7132.
