FINRA requires that all ink fingerprint cards be received within 30 days after U4 filings are submitted. If the fingerprint card is not received by FINRA within the 30-day time period, the individual’s FINRA registration status will be changed to “Inactive-prints”, and the individual will have to cease doing business until such time as the card is received and properly processed.

Response for fingerprints submitted via Live Scan quicker than traditional fingerprint ink cards. Contact California Live Scan Fingerprinting Centers (CAL-LIVE) for their nearest location; appointments and/or walk-ins are welcome.
