This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

Customs requires fingerprints to conduct background checks for various reasons. See, T.D. 93-18 (58 FR 15770, dated March 24, 1993). In a Federal Register notice published March 3, 1998 (63 FR 10426) Customs announced that the fingerprint fee was $20.70. This fee was for manually conducting fingerprinting on fingerprint cards. The manual processing of fingerprint cards takes an average of four to seven weeks.
Customs is now implementing, at certain airports, a computerized fingerprint identification system for the use of conducting background checks on airline and airport employees who require unescorted access to Federal Inspection Service areas of an airport. This system employs an automated fingerprint reading devise that electronically transmits the fingerprint data directly to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) where a criminal history background search can be conducted within 24 hours, instead of the four to seven weeks it normally takes to process fingerprint cards. Where implemented, this computerized fingerprinting system will be used in lieu of collecting fingerprints on cards.
The fee for this computerized fingerprinting will be $39.00. This fee is based on Customs recovering the FBI user-fee that is charged to Customs for conducting fingerprint checks and Customs administrative processing costs associated with the collection of fingerprints, which include the compensation and/or expenses of Customs officers performing the fingerprint service and 15% of that amount to cover Customs administrative overhead costs.Start Signature
