Title: FBI Criminal Background Checks

FBI Criminal Background Checks
FBI Criminal Check
  • An FBI Identification Record Requestoften
    referred to as a Criminal History or Criminal
    Background Check, or more commonly referred to as
    a rap sheetis a listing of certain information
    taken from fingerprint submissions retained by
    the FBI in connection with arrests and, in some
    instances, federal employment, naturalization, or
    military service.

Who May Request a Copy of a Record (or Proof That
a Record Does Not Exist)
  • Only you can request a copy of your own
    Identification Record.
  • All arrest data included in an Identification
    Record is obtained from fingerprint submissions,
    disposition reports, and other information
    submitted by agencies having criminal justice

Background Checks for Employment or Licensing
  • If you are requesting a background check for
    employment or licensing within the U.S., you may
    be required to submit your request through your
    state identification bureau, the requesting
    federal agency, or another authorized channeling
    agency. You should contact the agency requiring
    the background check or the appropriate state
    identification bureau (or state police) for the
    correct procedures to follow, because the
    procedures are different for each agency.

How to Request a Copy of Your Record
  • You can submit your request directly to the FBI.
    Rules, regulations and the correct forms to use
    are on the FBI.gov website.
  •  Submit to an FBI-approved Channeler or Vendor,
    which is a private business that has contracted
    with the FBI to receive the fingerprint
    submission and relevant data.
