USE AND CHALLENGE REQUIREMENTS

Fingerprint Records are subject to the following use and dissemination restrictions:

Under provisions set forth in Title 28, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Section 50.12, both governmental and nongovernmental entities authorized to submit fingerprints and receive FBI Identification Records must notify the individuals fingerprinted that the fingerprints will be used to check the criminal history records of the FBI. Identification records obtained from the FBI may be used solely for the purpose requested and may not be disseminated outside the receiving department, related agency or other authorized entity. If the information on the record is used to disqualify the applicant, the official making the determination of suitability for licensing or employment shall provide the applicant the opportunity to complete, or challenge the accuracy of, the information contained in the FBI Identification record. The deciding official should not decide the licensing or employment based on the information in the record until the applicant has been afforded a reasonable time to correct or complete the information, or has declined to do so. An individual should be presumed not guilty of any charge/arrest for which there is no final disposition stated in the record or otherwise determined. If the applicant wishes to correct the record as it appears in the FBI’s CJIS Division Records System, the applicant should be advised that the procedures for change, correct or update the record are set forth in Title 28, CFR, Section 16.34.
