NICS FBI Firearms Enhancements for 4473 Information

Good Afternoon,

Due to an unforeseen issue these enhancements will now be deployed on October 16, 2018.  These changes will be implemented across all methods of background check submissions, both NICS E-Check and the NICS Contracted Call Center.  Please note the slight change in verbiage for acknowledging the review of the ATF form 4473.

These modifications are to better assist in the background check process.  The NICS is a name-based system.  When a NICS background check is performed, a match/no match decision has to be made based upon the information available to the system.  The more information available for consideration in making a match/no match determination, the more accurate determination can be.  It is extremely important that the FFL check the government issued photo Identification provided by the purchaser to ensure that information matches the information supplied by the purchaser on the ATF Form 4473 and that the information is input into the background check with the same accuracy.

·         Require the capture of customers full Middle Name

o   NICS E-Check users must use “IO” or “NMN” when applicable (example X”IO” for initial only or “NMN” for no middle name)

·         Require the capture of a Valid Identification Number in the Miscellaneous Number(s) Field, i.e. Driver’s License Number

o   For all Non-US Citizens you will be required to enter both the I94 or AR/USCIS number and a Valid Government Issued Identification Number

·         Require the submitting user to attest they have reviewed the ATF Form 4473

o   “Do the name, date of birth, and place of residence in Section A on the ATF Form 4473 exactly match the valid government-issued photo identification (to include supplemental) document(s) provided to you AND do questions 11b through 11i and 12b and 12c have a “No” response?”

·         NICS E-Check users will now be required to re-enter the customers First, Middle, and Last Name on the verification page before clicking submit

We apologize for the sudden change of deployment date and appreciate your patience and understanding in this matter.

Thank you,

The NICS Business Relations Team
