411.0835 of the Government Code requires the Department to notify private entities that purchase criminal history information when an order of nondisclosure has been issued, thus making the record non-public. The Department will provide a file on our public web site that contains the Nondisclosure records that are no longer public. When an order of nondisclosure is issued you will get notification from DPS only. We will provide you with enough information to match it to other records that you have from other agencies.

You will be notified by email when the file is posted for download each week. You will have 30 business days from the posting of the file to remove any records. Failure to seal the records is a violation of the law and does have penalties.

The file you are sent includes information that will allow you to identify which records must be removed from your system. The tab-delimited file only includes records that have been recently added or modified. Upon request, a file containing all records will be made available.
