FINRA Fingerprinting And Background Checks

Ink and Electronic Fingerprinting Solutions for FINRA background checks

FINRA Background Checks

PrintScan offers ink fingerprinting on FINRA fingerprint cards, which we keep stocked in our offices.

We also offer electronic fingerprint submissions directly to FINRA!

PrintScan is an approved fingerprint channeler to handle all of your Electronic Fingerprint Submissions (EFS) to FINRA. PrintScan has worked closely with FINRA to become authorized to submit EFS under the guidelines established by the FBI and FINRA, and is only one of thirteen companies in the United States to do so.

As a certified vendor, we offer a secure connection where fingerprints can be submitted electronically with results being delivered back to the broker dealer through FINRA CRD. Electronic Fingerprint submissions allow for faster processing times, higher quality fingerprints, reduced rejection rates, and lower FINRA fingerprint processing fees assessed to firms.

2021 FINRA Update

FINRA has recently contracted with Sterling ID to be its designated fingerprint channeling provider for the submission of fingerprints to the Department of Justice (FBI) for broker-dealer firms and funding portals. Although FINRA is changing the way fingerprints are submitted to the FBI for FINRA background checks.

PrintScan is still a certified fingerprint vendor for FINRA

PrintScan offices are still fully operational and PrintScan is still accommodating mobile/on-site fingerprinting sessions for all FINRA clients. PrintScan Live Scan Electronic Fingerprint systems and solutions are still FINRA/FBI certified and acceptable for all our FINRA clients.

PrintScan already has an existing connection and partnership with Sterling ID which allows for us to direct FINRA fingerprint files through Sterling ID so your firms will continue to be in compliance.
