REVOKED,  NOT  RENEWED,  OR  A  CHILD WAS REMOVED FROM THE HOME, AND THE
REASON THEREFOR. IN  SUCH  INSTANCES,  THE  AGENCY  SHALL  EVALUATE  THE
CIRCUMSTANCES,  PURSUANT  TO  REGULATIONS  ESTABLISHED BY THE OFFICE, TO

Not until all inquiries are completed and  evaluated  shall  the  agency
cause such certificate to be issued.
