NFA - National Futures Association
Our company has been providing “ink rolled fingerprinting” for individuals registering with the National Future’s Exchange (NFA). This includes any individual that is applying to register as an Associated Person, Floor Broker, Floor Trader or to be listed as a Principal.
https://www.nfa.futures.org/NFA-registration/fingerprint-cards.php NFA can only accept and process a complete FBI "applicant card". Applicants are encouraged to submit more than one set of fingerprints with their application to avoid delays in obtaining additional sets if necessary for processing.
NFA will return to the applicant fingerprint cards that are incomplete or that are not applicant cards and will request new cards.
To conduct a check of its records the FBI must be able to analyze the print pattern of all 10 fingers. The FBI will reject fingerprint cards that do not have legible patterns for all 10 fingers. For this reason it is very important that you have your fingerprints taken by a person properly trained in rolling fingerprints.
