FINRA Fingerprinting

Bayou City Fingerprinting FINRA Fingerprinting Services

FINRA Fingerprinting and Background Checks

Many of our customers need a FINRA Fingerprint Background Check.

As a certified vendor, Bayou City Fingerprinting maintains a secure connection where fingerprints can be submitted electronically with results being delivered back to the broker through FINRA CRD. By using Electronic Fingerprint submissions, we take advantage of faster processing times, higher quality fingerprints, reduced rejection rates, and lower FINRA fingerprint processing fees assessed to firms.

We provide electronic fingerprint submission directly to FINRA. This allows for much quicker results than the traditional mailing method. The results are generally back in 3 to 5 business days after your FINRA Fingerprint Background Check. You will have to provide us with your company's CRD number, name, and address with FINRA.
