National Registered Sex Offender (NSOR)

Info Cubic's National Sex Offender Registry (NSOR) identifies individuals listed as National Registered Sex Offenders in U.S. states and territories

The National Sex Offender Registry (NSOR) identifies whether or not an individual is listed as a National Registered Sex Offender in 48 States, Washington D.C., U.S. Territories, and participating U.S. Native American Tribes. Info Cubic also offers a state specific sex offender check that will search the registry of your applicant’s state of residence. For access to the California and Nevada registries, please inquire into our Regulated Sex Offender Registry product.

Did you know

Criminal searches may report convictions that led to an individual being required to register as a sex offender, but if that conviction is over the timeframe included in the scope of the search or what the state allows, it may not be reported. However, a sex offender registry is not limited by the age of the record. Also, sex offenders are required to register if they move to another state, though this may not always happen or may not happen in a timely manner. For all of these reasons, the National Sex Offender Registry (NSOR) is a key component of any standard background package, especially for those organizations with employees who may come into contact with vulnerable populations.

Recommended for

The NSOR search is recommended as a supplemental search for any risk-averse organization, but can be particularly crucial to organizations that serve sensitive and or vulnerable populations. This may include education, healthcare, and childcare institutions. The NSOR should not serve as a replacement for a thorough criminal search.

Case #N/A
Defendant : JANE DOE
DOB 08/15/XXXX
Alias Jane Smith
Comments This individual is currently registered on the Colorado Sex Offender Registry.


Q: What type of information is returned in National Sex Offender Registry searches?

A: If a record is found, the only statement that is reported is: “This individual is currently registered on the [INSERT STATE NAME] Sex Offender Registry.” There will be no information regarding the type of offense, victim information, etc. To gather this information, a separate criminal record search must be placed to report any associated conviction information.


Q: Can we get information regarding the offense that lead to the applicant being placed on the registry?

A: While this information will not be included in the search results, you may receive the case information in a county, statewide or federal level search if ordered, and if the case occurred within the timeframe allowed per applicable state/federal reporting restrictions, Info Cubic can report the information via that criminal search.
