National WebCheck


National WebCheck is a fingerprint-based applicant background check system that was developed to support the electronic processing of criminal background checks at State and Federal levels for applicants in the State of Ohio. This Web-based solution addresses the needs of Ohio agencies—both public and private—that rely on background checks for hiring and other mandated purposes.

3M Cogent has developed a National WebCheck System that allows access to a secure, Web-based application that resides at BCI. Authorized individuals submit fingerprint-based searches via the Internet to run them against the State of Ohio and/or FBI criminal record database.

Fingerprint-based criminal history background checks are initiated with the electronic capture of flat fingerprints and demographic information. Applicants need only three scans completed (4-4-2): both hands (slaps) and two thumbs. From this data, the individual prints are extracted and validated to ensure their conformity to FBI specifications if a national background search is required for the applicant. The information is submitted directly to the State of Ohio fingerprint repository (AFIS) for background searches and is then passed through to the FBI’s IAFIS (if required).
