ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: This notice establishes revised rates for the user fee schedule for authorized users requesting fingerprint-based and name-based Criminal History Record Information (CHRI) checks for noncriminal justice purposes. SUMMARY: This revised fee schedule is effective October 1, 2016. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Robin A. Stark-Nutter, Section Chief, Resources Management Section, Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Division, FBI, 1000 Custer Hollow Road, Module E–3, Clarksburg, WV 26306. Telephone number (304) 625– 2910. DATES: Pursuant to the authority in Public Law 101–515, as amended, the FBI has established user fees for authorized agencies requesting noncriminal justice fingerprint-based and name-based CHRI checks. In accordance with the requirements of 28 CFR 20.31(e), the FBI periodically reviews the process of providing fingerprint-based and namebased CHRI checks to determine the proper fee amounts that should be collected, and the FBI publishes any resulting fee adjustments in the Federal Register. A fee study was conducted in keeping with 28 CFR 20.31(e)(2) and employed the same methodology as detailed in the Federal Register establishing the process for setting fees (75 FR 18751, April 13, 2010). The fee study results recommended reduced fingerprintbased and name-based CHRI checks from the current user fees published October 27, 2014 (79 FR 63943), which have been in effect since February 1, 2015. The fee study also recommended SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: the elimination of the interim fees set for ‘‘Rap Back.’’ Rap Back is an optional service offered by the FBI that provides authorized users with the capability to enroll an individual in a program in order to receive notification of subsequent triggering information, such as a new criminal arrest or the disposition of an old arrest, involving that individual during the term of enrollment. The fee study recommended that the cost of the optional Rap Back program be included as part of the revised fingerprint-based CHRI fees. The FBI independently reviewed the recommendations, compared them to current fee calculations and plans for future service, and determined that the revised fees were both objectively reasonable and consistent with the underlying legal authorities. Pursuant to the recommendations of the study, the fees for fingerprint-based CHRI checks will be decreased and the fee for namebased CHRI checks will be decreased for federal agencies specifically authorized by statute, e.g., pursuant to the Security Clearance Information Act, 5 U.S.C. 9101. The interim Rap Back fee will be eliminated.

SUMMARY: This notice establishes revised rates for the user fee 
schedule for authorized users requesting fingerprint-based and name-
based Criminal History Record Information (CHRI) checks for noncriminal 
justice purposes.

DATES: This revised fee schedule is effective October 1, 2016.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Robin A. Stark-Nutter, Section 
Chief, Resources Management Section, Criminal Justice Information 
Services (CJIS) Division, FBI, 1000 Custer Hollow Road, Module E-3, 
Clarksburg, WV 26306. Telephone number (304) 625-2910.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to the authority in Public Law 101-
515, as amended, the FBI has established user fees for authorized 
agencies requesting noncriminal justice fingerprint-based and name-
based CHRI checks. In accordance with the requirements of 28 CFR 
20.31(e), the FBI periodically reviews the process of providing 
fingerprint-based and name-based CHRI checks to determine the proper 
fee amounts that should be collected, and the FBI publishes any 
resulting fee adjustments in the Federal Register.
    A fee study was conducted in keeping with 28 CFR 20.31(e)(2) and 
employed the same methodology as detailed in the Federal Register 
establishing the process for setting fees (75 FR 18751, April 13, 
2010). The fee study results recommended reduced fingerprint-based and 
name-based CHRI checks from the current user fees published October 27, 
2014 (79 FR 63943), which have been in effect since February 1, 2015. 
The fee study also recommended the elimination of the interim fees set 
for ``Rap Back.'' Rap Back is an optional service offered by the FBI 
that provides authorized users with the capability to enroll an 
individual in a program in order to receive notification of subsequent 
triggering information, such as a new criminal arrest or the 
disposition of an old arrest, involving that individual during the term 
of enrollment. The fee study recommended that the cost of the optional 
Rap Back program be included as part of the revised fingerprint-based 
CHRI fees.
    The FBI independently reviewed the recommendations, compared them 
to current fee calculations and plans for future service, and 
determined that the revised fees were both objectively reasonable and 
consistent with the underlying legal authorities. Pursuant to the 
recommendations of the study, the fees for fingerprint-based CHRI 
checks will be decreased and the fee for name-based CHRI checks will be 
decreased for federal agencies specifically authorized by statute, 
e.g., pursuant to the Security Clearance Information Act, 5 U.S.C. 
9101. The interim Rap Back fee will be eliminated.

users requesting fingerprint-based and name-based CHRI checks for 
noncriminal justice purposes, including the difference from the fee
