I can explain to you how are fingerprint submitted the typically, the fingerprinting entity (such as a potentiato l employer, a State agency, a vendor, or a law enforcement agency) submits the fingerprint records of NBCP applicants to the SIB. The SIB is in charge of sending FBI Fingerprint Background Check records. Usually, hard cards are mailed to the SIB in batches. The FBI ceased processing hard cards as of April 2012. When hard cards are still in use inside a State, the SIB must scan the cards and send them electronically to the FBI.
