FINRA Fingerprinting Services

PrintScan is an authorized FINRA channeler

Who is FINRA?

FINRA is the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority

PrintScan offers ink fingerprinting on FINRA fingerprint cards, which we keep stocked in our offices. We also offer electronic fingerprint submissions 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.
