FBI Lowers Fee for Fingerprint Searches

Authorized users requesting fingerprint-based Criminal History Record Information (CHRI) checks for certain noncriminal justice purposes will see a lower fee starting March 19, 2012. The charge for a CHRI check when submitting fingerprints will decrease by $2.75, and if for a volunteer there is a $.25 decrease. For example the current fee in effect for electronic submission by authorized users will decrease from $19.25 to $16.50. The fee for Centralized Billing Service Providers (CBSPs) will decrease from $17.25 to $14.50. The fee for “volunteers” will decrease from $15.25 to $15.00, and if CBSP then $13.25 to $13.00. This new fee should lower the cost when the FBI performs the fingerprint search for background checks performed by state occupational licensing boards and also for the issuance of HAZMSAT endorsements for commercial driver licenses.
