NAIC Activates Producer Fingerprint Repository

Your article was successfully shared with the contacts you provided.

The National Association of Insurance Commissioners has launched a pilot project that will store the fingerprints of licensed insurance agents and brokers in an electronic database.[@@]

The 5 states participating in the pilot are Alaska, California, Idaho, New York and Pennsylvania, according to the NAIC, Kansas City, Mo.

The participating states will keep digital versions of producers’ fingerprints themselves and also send digital prints to a central NAIC repository.

To join the pilot, states must already be conducting electronic background checks on insurance producers. Participating states also must have legislative or regulatory authority to use the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s fingerprint identification system and the bureau’s criminal history database.
