IDENTICO has been awarded a contract with Federal Bureau of Investigation approved Channeler that now allows IDENTICO to electronically submit individual applicant’s fingerprint records to Criminal Justice Information System (FBI-CJIS) for noncriminal justice purposes and deliver the results of the fingerprint background criminal history checks directly to the applicants with a turnaround time of 24-hours or less.
By requesting your individual FBI Identity History Summary you can review the arrest data maintained by the FBI that is supported by your fingerprint impressions and the comparison made in the process. The comparison establishes a positive identification and ensures that an individual’s summary information is not disseminated to an unauthorized person. Your request to update should clearly identify the information that you feel is inaccurate or incomplete and you should include copies of any available proof or documentation to support your claim.
If you believe your Identity History Summary contains inaccurate or incomplete information, you may request a change or correction to your Identity History Summary information.
To challenge your Identity History Summary, you must provide your FBI Universal Control Number (FBI Number) from your Identity History Summary. If providing your SID, you must include the two-letter state abbreviation for the state in which your offense occurred. You can start the challenge process athttps://www.edo.cjis.gov/#/

1. How much does it cost to request my FBI Identity History Summary Check through Identico?
The cost to request an Identity History Summary Check is $89.
2. Would I receive my results electronically?
Right after the submission you would receive status notifications by e-mail and when the results are ready you would receive further instructions on retrieving your FBI Watermarked Rapsheet report.
3. What if my fingerprints are continuously rejected?
We will take up-to two sets of fingerprints when the rejection likelihood is high. After two rejections no further attempts will be made as the FBI does not provide name checks for Identity History Summary requests. FBI Background Check is non-refundable in the event of double rejection.
4. Does the FBI provide apostilles*?
(*An apostille is a certification that a document has been “legalized” or “authenticated” by the issuing agency through a process in which various seals are placed on the document.)
The FBI no longer place the FBI seal on U.S. Department of Justice Order 556-73 fingerprint search results. The FBI will authenticate all fingerprint search results by placing the FBI watermark and the signature of a division official on the results at the time of submission.
Documents authenticated by the FBI may then be sent to the U.S. Department of State by the requestor to obtain an apostille if necessary. Requests to authenticate previously processed results will not be accepted.
5. If I am having an attorney submit my request will an attorney release be needed?
Yes, in order to provide information to another party, a release will need to be submitted with the request.
If you need to submit a hard copy Fingerprint Card for out-of-state licensing purposes, IDENTICO can assist with Fingerprint Card Services by printing FD-258 card with your fingerprints and biometric data.
In most cases another state agencies provide applicants with the cards they prefer applicants to use. Those are standard FD-258 cards with ORI# and Reason for Fingerprinting sections being filed by the requesting agency. Bring your card in and we’ll do the rest. If you have the history of your fingerprints being rejected by FBI due to poor quality, please ask requesting agency to supply you with two cards, so they would have both sets right away as required by FBI in such cases. The cost of service is $20/card.
