The New York State Office of Children and Family Services’ web-based Online Clearance System supports the mandate under Section 424-a of the Social Services Law for legally authorized agencies to inquire of the Statewide Central Register of Child Abuse and Maltreatment (SCR) as to the existence of any indicated reports of child abuse and maltreatment against an applicant prior to employment, certification, or licensure in the child care field.

The Online Clearance System allows designated, authorized users access to electronically submit database-check requests to the SCR, thereby replacing the mailing of the paper LDSS-3370 form. SCR responses are delivered to the agency electronically to further reduce the processing time. To receive a registration packet or obtain more information, you may contact your licensing agency or call the SCR at 518-474-1567.
