EEC Background Record Check Information & Forms
Below are the forms necessary for your program to file with EEC in order to receive approval of your program’s Licensee and Reviewer(s). You may download these forms by clicking on the links below. Instructions on how to access the Employee/ Volunteer/Intern Consent form also appear below, along with EEC’s Technical Assistance Paper on Background Record Checks and other training and resource materials.

In the future, other forms and resource materials may be posted to this page in order to assist you with the new Background Record Check process. Please send any comments or questions to: EECHelpDesk@massmail.state.ma.us


Note: For instructions on new Single Sign In, please review the following documents

EEC has released a new web-based application for submitting and tracking Background Record Check (BRC) requests for current users of online BRC via eCCIMS. When accessing your eCCMS account you will be re-directed to the Single Sign In (SSI) application. SSI is a single entry point to all EEC web-based applications, the new BRC being one of them. For an overview of the application click here

Regulatory changes, effective on March 21, 2008, provide EEC with the ability to define certain limited circumstances under which a candidate for employment in an EEC licensed and/or funded program could begin work after the completion of a Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI) investigation, but prior to the completion of a Department of Social Services (DSS) background check investigation. To view the Regulatory changes and the new Policy regarding when a program may allow a candidate to begin work prior to the completion of the DSS portion of the required BRC investigations click here
