Your fingerprints and associated information/biometrics may be provided to the employing, investigating, or otherwise responsible agency, and/or the FBI for the purpose of comparing your fingerprints to other fingerprints in the FBI’s Next Generation Identification (NGI) system or its successor systems (including civil, criminal, and latent fingerprint repositories) or other available records of the employing, investigating, or otherwise responsible agency.

Routine Uses: During the processing of this application and for as long thereafter as your fingerprints and associated information/biometrics are retained in NGI, your information may be disclosed pursuant to your consent, and may be disclosed without your consent as permitted by the Privacy Act of 1974 and all applicable Routine Uses as may be published at any time in the Federal Register, including the Routine Uses for the NGI system and the FBI’s Blanket Routine Uses.

Challenge of an Identity History Summary

The FBI is responsible for the storage of fingerprints and related Identity History Summary information

for the nation and does not have the authority to modify any Identity History Summary information

unless specifically notified to do so by the agency that owns the information. If you believe your Identity

History Summary contains inaccurate or incomplete information, you have two options for requesting a

change or correction:

Option 1: Contact the agency or agencies that submitted the information to the FBI.

-Missing or Incorrect State (Non-Federal) Information: Most states require that changes to Identity History Summary information be processed through their respective state centralized agency (State Identification Bureau) before any changes can be made to your information. You may contact the respective State Identification Bureau for assistance, and, if applicable, request that they provide the FBI with updates to your Identity History Summary. Contact information for each state is provided on the State Identification Bureau listing. Several states maintain their own record system. Record updates are made at the state level only, so the FBI cannot change its records. Instead, the FBI accesses the state’s system for authorized purposes to review the record. Contact information for states maintaining records at the state level is provided on the State-Maintained Records listing.

-Missing or Incorrect Federal Information: For federal Identity History Summary updates, the FBI must receive a request directly from the original arresting agency, from a court with control over the arrest data, or from another agency with control over the arrest data.

Option 2: Send a written challenge request to the FBI.

Your written request should clearly identify the information that you feel is inaccurate or incomplete

and should include copies of any available proof or supporting documentation to support your claim. For example, if your disposition information is incorrect or missing, you may submit documentation

obtained from the court having control over the arrest or the office prosecuting the offense. The FBI will

contact appropriate agencies in an attempt to verify or correct challenged entries for you. Upon receipt

of an official communication from the agency with control over the data, the FBI will make appropriate

changes and notify you of the outcome. You may submit an Identity History Summary challenge to the FBI by writing to the following address:
