Once they have that documentation, they consider whether the nature of the crime(s) (charged or convicted) are contrary to the ethics expectations of the NMTCB, whether they represent a pattern that may be contrary to the ethics expectations of the NMTCB, or whether granting certification might pose a risk to any part of the population. These types of assessments are not possible without all of the documentation described.
