What is LiveScan Fingerprinting?

History and Background of ATF Fingerprinting

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) isn’t new to the fingerprint game. But with Livescan, they’ve truly modernized. The ATF uses fingerprinting for various purposes, including the verification of firearm transactions.


How ATF Uses Electronic Fingerprint Transmission (EFT) Files

EFT Files are like the express lane on the highway. Instead of waiting days or weeks for fingerprint cards to be mailed and processed, these electronic files are sent instantly. We send the EFT file instantly by email.

ATF EForms Currently Available Forms 1-10

    • ATF Forms 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 6A, 9, 10, and 5300.11 are available for eForms submission.

Note: The Form 4 has returned to eForms. Form 4 is filed by a current qualified federal firearms licensee (FFL) registrant to transfer an NFA weapon to an individual or other entity (non-licensee). 

Miami Beach Livescan fingerprinting service will generate an EFT File for ATF EForm(s) Form 4 submissions via a download link and electronic fingerprints for ATF Form 1.
